Former Hammer Paul Konchesky has told Jim White on Talk Sport that West Ham should back everyone including the owners if they want to survive.
Konchesky is thought to be employed for the West Ham Academy and helps out with scouting
Koch told Talk Sport listeners:“They (West Ham) are not doing too well in the league at the moment, the owners are always going to get it because West Ham fans are West Ham fans and they don’t want to see the football club near the bottom of the Premier League”.
“We know when they left Upton park it weren’t a good thing from the owners they say, now they are struggling in the new stadium. The West Ham fans are going to go for the owners and we need to get behind them because they put their money in and we need to back everyone”
Asked by White about the protests and comments made towards to owners
“When you see things like that and you read it it affects you, at the moment I think it is affecting the players, especially the new players which really don’t know what West Ham is about, it’s affecting them from day one”
On the London Stadium Konch added: “I go and visit the London Stadium and think I wish I was playing, these stadiums today, I love to be involved in them. You really see the athletics stadium anymore, the owners have covered it up as much as they can and the boys are there to play football, lets not make excuses, there is a football pitch there. So that’s the main thing and the fans need to get behind all the players”
“The fans need to get behind all the players.”
“When you see things like that [the protests], it affects you.”
