West Ham defender Zouma: We're all behind Ogbonna

West Ham defender Kurt Zouma says the players are right behind Angelo Ogbonna after he was ruled out for the season.

Ogbonna has just undergone knee surgery.

“We are all behind him, we all love him," Zouma said. “He's an important player for the Club and the team and obviously we want him to come back as quick as possible."

On defeat to Wolves, the Frenchman said: “There are days like this – we started the game well, but after the first 20 minutes I would say we were a bit short everywhere on the pitch.

"We couldn't press well, they had the ball and made us run a bit more than usual and we conceded the goal in the second half.

“It didn't happen at Wolves and it was a bad day, but we have many, many, many more games coming to change it up.

“Hopefully we'll get a win at Rapid Vienna on Thursday and get a reaction from Saturday. We have time to recover and prepare for the game, so hopefully we go there and win.

“We are all top players here and we have a great squad. We have to keep on working hard and we won't win every game, but we want to win the majority of them."
