West Ham Chairman David Gold wants to take the Europa League seriously and says he wants to win it!
Speaking to the BBC today Gold told Frank Keogh
“I really take this tournament seriously and I want to win it, We’ve got to prepare ourselves for plenty of games and hope we don’t get too many injuries.”
“We saw it last season with a fabulous start, then players started dropping like flies before we finished a disappointing 12th.”
