The Citizen (KZN) - - Sport - Lon­don

– West Ham United co-owner David Gold has of­fered his sup­port to Manch­ester United vice-chair­man Ed Wood­ward and said threats and vi­o­lent protests tar­get­ing club of­fi­cials “can­not be tol­er­ated”.

Po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing an at­tack on Wood­ward’s home last month af­ter videos emerged on so­cial me­dia show­ing a group of peo­ple in hoods chant­ing threats and throwing flares over the gate. “I know ex­actly what Ed’s ex­pe­ri­enced. I’ve had it four or five times my­self,” Gold told the Bri­tish me­dia.
