Pre-game behind-the-scenes video proves David Moyes made crazy decision to start Kurt Zouma for West Ham against Leicester.

The 28-year-old actually pulled up during the warm-up before the game even kicked off with an unspecified problem.

And then Zouma went off injured after just 15 minutes during our defeat to Leicester.

The Frenchman moved to the London Stadium from Chelsea in the summer of 2021 for around £30 million (Sky Sports).

Ever since he joined West Ham though, he has experienced constant problems with his knees, and even when he plays, he just doesn’t look right physically.

The warning signs were there before today’s game as well…

David Moyes made crazy selection decision for West Ham vs Leicester

Kurt Zouma is arguably our best central defender on his day.

The Frenchman has been much improved in recent weeks as well, after a very slow start to the season.

The problem is that he looks completely ruined physically pretty much every time he steps on the pitch for the Hammers.

Moyes should never have started him today in my opinion.

He had other options available to him in the form of Nayef Aguerd and Thilo Kehrer.

Take a look at the below video before today’s game, and make your own minds up:

Zouma is clearly walking with a limp. It’s like one leg is longer than the other!

Something’s obviously not right with Zouma’s fitness. Let’s hope that this six-week break does him the world of good now.

If the Frenchman continues to struggle though, it is something that Moyes and the Hammers board will have to act upon.

David Moyes selecting Zouma for the West Ham vs Leicester clash this afternoon was a big mistake in my opinion.
