Alan Curbishley believes David Sullivan is a ‘dying breed’ and that Hammers fans are very lucky to have him and David Gold as chairmen.
And in an exclusive interview with Blowing Bubbles Monthly, Curbishley believes he could have worked with the pair and had they been at the helm when he was manager, he would never have left.
“It’s so rare to find a chairman these days who’s a fan who’s done good and come back to buy the club he loves – so many owners now just look upon a club as part of a franchise; in many cases, they don’t even bother going to games, let alone that you would have any chance to talk to them,” he said.
“West Ham fans are so lucky in that in Sullivan and David Gold, they’ve got two people who really have the club close to their heart.”
