West Ham fans have been told not to give up on Andy Carroll
The club’s record signing has recovered from a very minor injury to an ankle injury which kept him out of the game against Norwich and ready to take his place in the squad for the trip to Palace.
The player’s injury woes has almost become the stuff of legends since his Upton Park arrival but co chairman David Gold has pleaded with the fans to remain patient.
Speaking to ClaretandHugh exclusively the co chairman said: “Nobody should give up on Andy. He’s looking strong and fit and could remain fit for a long time.
“We were just being cautious when leaving him out of the squad against Sunderland because there was no need for us to do otherwise.
“But he’s raring to go again and we are al right behind him – there really should be no question of giving up on the lad. He can have a very good career at West Ham United.”
