Exclusive: Gold apology to Man United


Gold2David Gold watched horrified as events unfolded in Green Street ahead of the Manchester Unitd coach being attacked last night

And he told ClaretandHugh exclusively: We were watching from the balcony and we apologise to the Manchester United players, manager and all officials of the club. It is unacceptable.”

Whilst the club isn’t responsible for events outside the stadium, that eople calling themselves West Ham fans should behave as they ¬†cast a huge shadow over events on this historic night.

And of course it’s become the lead item on the news and sports pages this morning – seriously disappointing given the historic events unfolding inside the Boleyn.

Gold, however thanked all the “real fans” who ensured that the evening went so well saying: “There was no hint of a crowd invasion – our people were brilliant and as ever they behaved perfectly.

“It was an incredible night ¬†from every point of view apart from the coach incident but the club knows it can always rely on the real West Ham fans and I thank every one of them.”
