McCarthy fouled Dimitri Payet during West Ham’s match against Everton at the weekend, and he caused the French midfielder to pick up a serious injury.
Payet is set to miss three months’ worth of action, and Gold tweeted a rather sarcastic message about the challenge on Twitter yesterday evening.
'He' got the ball, broke the players leg in four places. Great tackle. "Love is blind" dg https://t.co/o5PmpILgod— David Gold (@davidgold) November 11, 2015
Payet’s injury is a huge blow for West Ham, as he has been so important to their chances so far this season.
The former Marseille man was brought to the club during the summer transfer window, and he has immediately made an impact at Upton Park.
Payet’s skill in possession has added further quality to West Ham’s attack, and he has helped the side make a brilliant start to their Premier League season.
Slaven Bilic’s men are currently in sixth place in the standings, but keeping up their good form without their talisman will be a huge test of the quality in their squad.
