David Gold has declared that he doesn’t want to give up ownership of West Ham with his co chairman David Sullivan all the while he has breath in his body.
Many believe that the move to Stratford could see the club become a magnet for rich investors – a view seemingly shared by former Arsenal star Ray Parlour.
Speaking to talkSport Parlour said; “I think down the line, a big hitter might come in and buy West Ham and suddenly that could put them in the same bracket and they’re going for that top four.”
Gold, however, insists that is very much a double-edged sword scenario and that he wants to remain in charge of the club with his long term business colleague Sullivan.
Speaking to ClaretandHugh he said: “To be in control of this great club has been my dream for many years but if someone really really really rich came along maybe we would have to move aside.
“But I think we would both want to continue playing a role in helping establish and stabilise the club.”
