Chairman feels “robbed” after proud display

gold-david-gold-west-ham-co-owner-july-2014_3179990David Gold admitted that he arrived back in London this evening “feeling robbed” after the events at Old Trafford.

The co chairman declaring himself “incredibly proud” of the players and believes a win wouldn’t have been an unjust result.

But he felt particularly sorry for Mauro Zarate that he failed to  score from a simple chance after creating the opportunity via a fabulous run.

Speaking exclusively to ClaretandHugh he said: “We had that and hit the post twice. I actually feel robbed. With all the problems we have with injuries it ¬†was a fantastic performance by the lads and I couldn’t disagree that it was probably Zarate’s best in a Hammers shirt.

“We’ve always known he’s a confidence player and with the games he’s now getting it’s growing all the time. For that we again have to thank the manager. He has shown real faith in him and it’s now being repaid in spades.

“We saw that brilliant free kick last week and a top display today. It’s great that he has come so far this season – a real bonus for us and there’s more to come.”

He paid tribute to the entire team but gave special mentions to Winston Reid, James Tomkins and Andy Carroll declaring: “We know AC is top quality – everything came into his feet today and he showed exactly what he’s about. The man is quality.

“At the end of it all though it’s about the manager and the way he chooses to play – he’s getting the best from everybody. I’m very happy tonight.”

  1. Great assessment by David Gold as always. Yes he always manages to sum things up nicely and tell it how it should be.
