David Gold posts message on Twitter to celebrate six years with West Ham United

West Ham United co-chariman David Gold took over the club six years ago today.

West Ham United co-chairman David Gold has posted an emotional message on Twitter to reflect on his first six years at Upton Park.

Gold has seen the highs and lows since buying the London club with Karen Brady and David Sullivan.

The 79-year-old has helped the Hammers establish their place in the Premier League and he has thanked the club’s supporters for their backing.

Gold was in charge at West Ham when they were relegated from the Premier League, but they have bounced back in style.

The Hammers are now in a good place, and they appear to be progressing as a club.

Gold has announced big plans for the future, with the Hammers due to move into the Olympic Stadium in the coming years.

West Ham are targeting becoming a Champions League contender in the near future, and the signs are that they are well on the way to achieving their aim.

Since Slaven Bilic has become manager of the Hammers, they have looked a force to be reckoned with - and they currently sit in sixth place in the Premier League table.
