Gold: ‘Footballers and beef burgers don’t mix’

0001burgerWest Ham Chairman David Gold has hit back at former Hammer Benni McCarthy by saying ‘Footballers and beef burgers don’t mix!”

In response to sexist comments made by McCarthy about Karren Brady, Gold tweeted “More importantly Benni. Footballers and beef burgers don’t mix. dg”

McCarthy recently said about his time at West Ham “I saw so many things in my life and in football for me, it was nothing. Woman and football, it’s not such a good combination.I was just hurt and when I returned, I was not the same. You have to get into shape. People forget that if you did not feed for twelve weeks and you do not come back for a game, it’s very hard to find your best level. You have to link several games before, maybe, to get fit.”

When McCarthy was released in 2011 after 13 disappointing appearances for the Hammers McCarthy hit out at Karren Brady saying “It makes me want to throw up. There’s the devil with a set of tits.”

Brady later rebuked “At least I’m supposed to have tits
