David Gold is again singing the praises of Irons record signing Andy Carroll.
The co chairman believes that the big fella deserves all the credit in the world for fighting his way back from injury and has regularly leapt to the player’s defence publicly.
Carroll was not risked at Sunderland yesterday after suffering bruising to an ankle during last weekend’s match against Norwich City.
The club insist it isn’t serious and that he will be available after the international break but in the meantime DG has been responding on twitter to the player’s injury problems.
He said: “Carroll is the bests English centre forward of his type imo. He could easily go the rest of his career without a major injury. dg.”
He was also delighted with the team’s recovery at the Stadium of Light yesterday after going two down adding:”Great fight back after falling behind to Sunderland our fans were magnificent. dg”
