David Gold reacts on Twitter to Leicester's title win, comment will excite West Ham fans

David Gold has belief that West Ham can copy Leicester's title success.

Leicester City won the Premier League title on Monday evening - and they have been congratulated by West Ham chairman David Gold.

The Foxes could've won the title on Sunday afternoon with a win over Manchester United, but drew 1-1 at Old Trafford, meaning anything other than a win for Tottenham at Chelsea would secure the title for Claudio Ranieri's side.

Whilst Spurs were 2-0 up at Stamford Bridge, they fell apart in the second half and drew 2-2, meaning Leicester have - remarkably - been crowned Premier League champions for the first time.

It's one of the greatest stories in football history, and their rise from fighting against relegation last season to top dogs this season will inspire many other so-called 'smaller' clubs into pushing for the title - and West Ham may be one such team.

The Hammers are pushing for Europa League football, and their superb campaign under Slaven Bilic has gone somewhat under the radar due to Leicester's stunning story at the top of the table.

With a true Premier League star in Dimitri Payet, a superb manager, money to spend this summer and the move to the Olympic Stadium, West Ham appear to be set up for lasting success - and Leicester's title win could give fans hope of a similar push in the near future.

After Leicester's title success was confirmed, West Ham co-chairman David Gold took to Twitter to congratulate the Foxes - and added that this will be West Ham in a year's time, which will no doubt excite fans about the direction of the club in the coming years.

Do you think West Ham can emulate Leicester's title win?
