Lord Sugar reacts to Gold's announcement, wishes West Ham luck in Olympic Stadium

Lord Sugar has wished West Ham luck in the Olympic Stadium.

Former Tottenham chairman Lord Sugar has taken to Twitter to wish West Ham luck in the Olympic Stadium, and is pleased to see the John Lyall Gates moving.

The Hammers have enjoyed a stunning final season at Upton Park, and sit just two points away from a Champions League place under Slaven Bilic.

The Croatian has made the Hammers a real force this season, and spearheaded by the likes of Dimitri Payet, Manuel Lanzini, Michail Antonio and Mark Noble, West Ham have been one of the teams of the Premier League season.

Now well into March, Hammers fans know that their time at Upton Park is coming to an end. This summer, West Ham will leave their home of 112 years in order to move to the Olympic Stadium, which is seen as a huge step forward for the club.

Some fans are understandably sad to be leaving Upton Park, which is filled with memories, but West Ham are making sure that some of the history from their current ground moves with them to the Olympic Stadium.

Hammers chairman David Gold announced on Twitter that the famous John Lyall Gates will be moving to Stratford when West Ham head to their new stadium, prompting a positive reaction from former Tottenham chairman Lord Sugar.

Sugar took to Twitter to state that it's nice to see West Ham keeping some of their history even in their new era, and wishes the Hammers luck as they prepare to make their big move at the end of the season.


Do you think West Ham's move to the Olympic Stadium will be a success?
