David Gold has sent his sympathies to everybody caught up in the tragic events of Paris.
The club’s co chairman was quickly off the mark to let his feelings be known as the world tried to absorb the events of the last 24 ours.
And there was a bright note as the French Football Federation announced they would be going ahead with the planned match against England at Wembley on Tuesday evening.
Gold declared in his message: “I’m deeply saddened to learn of the tragic events in Paris. It’s a sad day and my thoughts and sympathies go out to all those affected.”
Meanwhile David Sullivan told ClaretandHugh: “What can one say? It’s a very sad day for the world.”
