Karren Brady has asked West Ham fans to understand that while their frustrations are justifiable, herself, David Sullivan and David Gold all care about the club.
In her latest column for The Sun, Brady revealed that despite their “thick skin”, the three key West Ham figures all hurt when the fans criticise them.
Brady wrote: “I cannot say it doesn’t impact on us, particularly given my chairmen’s genuine love for the club and how utterly committed we all are to the long-term success on behalf of our supporters.
“David Sullivan and David Gold have given eight years of blood, sweat and tears to help West Ham escape a very perilous situation upon our arrival.
“I can promise you they really do care,” Brady added.
Brady also claimed that the three of them were at their best when their backs were against the wall.
“But that is when West Ham supporters are historically at their best — and that is when David Sullivan, David Gold and I are at our best.
“We are not quitters and we are here to honour our commitment and cement the long-term future of West Ham United FC.”
Brady, Gold and Sullivan have come in for criticism from vocal elements of the West Ham support, and some brought banners to make their feelings felt in the game against Watford.
David Moyes addressed the issue at his press conference for the Leicester City game, revealing he was shocked at what he saw and that everyone needed to come together.
The most visible banner from the game labelled the trio “lying frauds” and directly asked for the board to be sacked.
Hammers fans have been unhappy following their side’s dismal start to the season that has seen them land in the relegation zone with only nine points from 12 games.
