Forget the 10-match ban, Zouma has already apologised for what was a terrible accident.
The 19-year-old defender has been well-known to Football Manager aficionados for several years now, but as the transfer speculation mounts, wider familiarity is growing.
And it won't be long before Zouma is a household name.
He's already been linked with the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United, been name checked as a future France international by head coach Didier Deschamps and made over 50 league appearances for his club before his 20th birthday.
Alongside Raphael Varane, France have a formidable potential partnership for the next 15 years.
