How much does it take? The fine for Zouma caused stuffy in the cabin, the players found out how much he was taking

West Ham football is still in the fight for the Champions League. He can take another step towards the dream competition today against Leicester. However, the affair of Kurt Zouma is still being solved more than the English league match itself. This has an adverse effect on cabin relations.

Points against Leicester could gain “Hammers” in fourth place in the Premier League table after Saturday’s hesitation by Manchester United. But last week, the media and fans on the islands have been dealing with football in the second row.

The affair of Kurt Zouma is still going on with the team. Stopper abused his cats, and after the video appeared on the Internet, almost nothing else was talked about about West Ham. The club has already lost sponsors and an unpleasant explanation awaited coach David Moyes, who put the defender in the basic lineup the day after the video was released. The cats were taken from Zoum.

Zouma received a fine of 250 thousand pounds (about 7.3 million crowns) from the club. “We punished him with the maximum possible fine,” Moyes confirmed. According to reports, it was supposed to be two weekly salaries. Simple mathematics suggests that the French defender’s salary is thus £ 125,000 a week.

This information is reportedly new to the team, which doesn’t do any good in the cabin. According to the Daily Mail, Zoum’s salary literally infuriated some of his teammates.

If the reports are accurate, it would mean that he is the best paid player of the team. Some members of the staff do not like this. Captain Declan Rice, who, despite the interest of big clubs, remains in West Ham and is one of the most sought-after goods in the Premier League, could be upset.

According to the Salary Sport server, Rice, although he is an absolutely key figure in the team, takes about half of Zoum’s gauge – 62 thousand pounds. Jarrod Bowen is slightly better off with 80,000, and striker Mikhail Antonio will lose £ 100,000 after signing a new contract.

The salary of Czech players in West Ham is estimated at approximately £ 50,000 a week for Tomáš Souček, £ 27,000 for Vladimír Coufal and £ 3,000 less for Alex Král.

According to Salary Sport, Alphonse Areol’s goalkeeper still takes more money than Zouma – 138 thousand pounds a week, according to other sources (such as the Daily Mail) with 125 thousand pounds a week, Zouma is the best paid player in the squad.

The result of the whole case can be unpleasant for the management and owners of West Ham in the end. As they negotiated new contracts, players were given a strong reason to ask for more money. Zouma played sixteen matches after arriving from Chelsea in the summer. He definitely strengthened the defense, but he is not such a leader as Rice, Souček or Bowen.

“The situation is terrible, we will agree on that,” Moyes returned to the incident before the match with Leicester. “I don’t deal with sponsors, but it’s not good that they left us at the club. Kurt also disappointed me,” he added.

Despite the wave of criticism that Moyes received after Zouma’s deployment to Tuesday’s match with Watford, he intends to pit the 27-year-old defender against Leicester today. “There are different opinions on this, but he will play against Leicester and I stand by my decision,” advised the Scottish coach.

“He is really sorry and hopes that the fans will forgive him. Most of us will make a mistake in our lives. We hope that other people will forgive him at least a little,” he said.

Leicester dropped to 13th after a series of poor results. He managed to win only one of the last five matches. A strong team will definitely not fight for the cups in the Premier League this year. Coach Brendan Rodgers admitted that he came under pressure.

“I don’t believe he’s really under pressure. He’s one of the best coaches in the Premier League and he belongs to the elite in the whole of Europe. It just shows that good and bad times alternate in football. But you have to be able to get out of the bad ones. “I hope we can take advantage of their bad forms, even if it’s a good team with above-average players,” Moyes said of the opponent’s strength.
