West Ham co-owner criticizes Andre Ayew on Twitter amid club's poor start
West Ham United's co-owner David Gold is running out of patience for under-performing star Andre Ayew and his teammates after losing their opening two English Premier League matches.
He has made his opinions known on a selection of the club's players as the Hammers slumped to another defeat on Saturday, losing 3-2 to Southampton.
Although short, the comment seen via Twitter, focused criticism on the Iron's Robert Snodgrass, Andre Ayew and Jose Fonte.
In the wake of the 3-2 loss against the Saints, one angry supporter tweeted co-owner David Gold with a fair concern about West Ham's transfers, probably not expecting a response.
"You spent nearly £40m on Snodgrass Ayew and Fonte...how do you sleep at night?" he wrote.
Rather than overlook the tweet, he responded:
"I don't. DG [David Gold]."
Considering that Robert Snodgrass, Andre Ayew, and Jose Fonte are still at the club, Gold's comments may certainly carry the risk of further upsetting team harmony.
