David Gold trolls Lord Sugar, and claims West Ham star Cheikou Kouyate terrifies opponents

West Ham midfielder Kouyate was wide-eyed after a big win.

West Ham co-chairman David Gold was beaming after the club beat rivals Tottenham in their last ever game against them at Upton Park.

He posed in the dressing room alongside delighted players, with Cheikou Kouyate giving the crazy eyes at the back of the picture.

Gold remarked to a fan who pointed it out, that it is easy to see why the midfielder is such an imposing figure for opponents to have to deal with.

The 71-year-old was in high spirits, joking why he felt the need to point himself out in the post-match photo.

He even had time to wind up former Tottenham chairman Lord Sugar, who had sent him a plea before the game urging the Hammers to lose to help Spurs' title chances. There was little chance of that as the Hammer won the game 1-0 with Tottenham disappointing.

The season keeps on getting better for the Hammers, who are just one point off the Champions League places, although Manchester City in fourth have a game in hand.
