Tottenham fans mock David Gold after Twitter blunder

By Will Butcher

Tottenham fans have mocked David Gold on Twitter after the West Ham co-owner claimed the London Stadium was the biggest in London.

West Ham’s ground holds a sizeable 60,000 fans, but remains a huge 30,000 away from Wembley which is situated around 17 miles away in England’s capital.

Gold claimed on his personal Twitter account that the London Stadium was the “biggest stadium in London” and claimed the Hammers “should be proud of it”.

However, Spurs fans were quick to notice the former Birmingham City joint owner’s mistake on Twitter, describing him as “delusional” and “a comedian” in response to Gold’s verdict.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

The London Stadium has come under huge criticism this season, with security concerns, a lack of fans’ attendance to matches and the Hammers home form all causes for scrutiny.

However, West Ham’s new home was still voted Stadium of the Year for 2016 by five architectural experts on Wednesday, despite the criticism levelled at it throughout the season.

Spurs are yet to play at the London Stadium this season, as they travel to West Ham’s home on May 6 in the north London outfit’s third-last game of the season.
