David Gold delighted with West Ham United win v Manchester City, ‘worried’ about Diafra Sakho

West Ham

West Ham United co-chairman David Gold is overjoyed with the victory over Manchester City in the Premier League but is ‘worried’ about the late injury to Diafra Sakho.

West Ham United co-chairman David Gold has said that striker Diafra Sakho will go for a scan on Monday.

The 24-year-old striker suffered a shoulder injury against Manchester City on Saturday and had to be substituted in the 89th minute.

Gold has now admitted that he is ‘worried’ about the injury suffered by the Senegal international.

Sakho has been in impressive form for West Ham since joining the Hammers from French club Metz in the summer transfer window.

The striker was on target against City at the Boleyn Ground on Saturday as the London club got the better of defending English champions Manchester City 2-1 in the Premier League. It was Sakho’s sixth goal in seven league appearances and helped West Ham remain in the top four.

Sam Allardyce’s side are currently fourth in the standings with 16 points from nine matches, just a point behind City.

West Ham are ahead of Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur at the moment, leading Gold to gloat about his team.
