West Ham United co-owner David Gold’s latest message on Twitter has only served to spark anger among the fan-base at the London Stadium.

Gold put out a tweet suggesting that West Ham were doing excellently to have eight youngsters out representing their countries at international level.

However, West Ham fans were quick to ask why they were not getting a chance in their side’s first-team.

West Ham have a number of talented prospects currently breaking through, but Bilic has been reluctant to give many youngsters a chance.

The Hammers have the likes of Antonio Martinez, Martin Samuelsen, Reece Burke, Reece Oxford and Josh Cullen all impressing at youth level and out on loan, but they have largely been overlooked.

West Ham have stuck by their more senior professionals, with most of their prized prospects having to go out on loan to gain first-team experience.

And West Ham fans have been growing more and more frustrated, with many of their more experienced players out of form.

West Ham are currently in 15th place in the Premier League table, with the calls for more youthful exuberance to be added to Bilic’s side growing louder.
