West Ham United’s David Gold confident of win v Manchester United; comments on Ravel Morrison’s future

West Ham United co-chairman David Gold comments on the side’s Premier League clash against Manchester United on Saturday and on the future of midfielder Ravel Morrison.

West Ham United co-chairman David Gold has been frequenting social media site Twitter in recent days.

The 78-year-old has been publicly hailing the players following matches and has also been providing injury updates.

Gold has been generous enough to reply to West Ham fans’ queries about the future of the club and the team's prospects this season, and on Thursday he did something similar.



It seems that Gold understands the task when West Ham take on Manchester United at Old Trafford in the Premier League on Saturday, but he is still confident of picking up the three points.

United will certainly head into the match as the favourites despite their spectacular collapse against Leicester City at the King Power Stadium last weekend, but it would be unwise to write off the Hammers’ chances just yet.

Gold was also asked about the future of Ravel Morrison, who has joined Championship club Cardiff City on a three-month loan deal.

The 21-year-old midfielder recently claimed on social networking site Twitter that he ‘got no ratings off people in the club not the club itself just people in it’.

West Ham manager Sam Allardyce has claimed that Morrison needs more ‘self-discipline’, and Gold seems to be believe that the youngster’s career is in his own hands.
