WEST HAM chairman David Gold was involved in an angry confrontation with fans after the defeat at Swansea. 

Tensions threatened to boil over outside the Liberty Stadium following the 4-1 thrashing at the hands of their relegation rivals in South Wales. 

Gold was spotted leaving the game early, which he explained was for “security” reasons. 

But as he left the car park, the co-owner stopped his vehicle to speak with several travelling supporters. 

A video of the clash quickly went viral on social media, and showed Gold asking the angry fans to calm down. 

He said: “I’m 82-years-old. 

“You don’t understand. I’m hurting as much as you.” 

The irate West Ham followers then hurled several swear words back at the chief. 

And there were also numerous shouts for him to “leave the club”. 

There has been a huge breakdown between West Ham’s owners and supporters this season, with many claiming that Gold and co-chairman David Sullivan have failed to keep several promises. 

And the transfer policy is nothing more then a joke, this club is only going one way at the moment. 

Lets hope I’m wrong.
