West Ham co-chairman David Gold has blamed jet-lag for a social media mistake that suggested he wanted to see Sam Allardyce quit.

Having travelled with the club on their pre-season tour of New Zealand, Gold 'favourited' a tweet sent to him by a supporter which called for Allardyce to be sacked.

"Is today the day we get rid of BFS?? @davidgold fingers crossed," it read – 'BFS' is a derogatory nickname fans have for the manager.

Gold then wrote: "I did not and would never deliberately or intentionally endorse a tweet that questions our manager's position. Lesson: don't use Twitter when you're jet-lagged!"
