West Ham’s co-owner David Gold made a Twitter blunder during his latest post on social media.
The 84-year-old has enjoyed a successful summer, seeing his team sit second in the Premier League after going unbeaten in their first three games with 10 goals.
While they have also strengthened ahead of the Europa League campaign, spending more than £60m on three players as well as securing two loans.
But Gold’s post intended to welcome four of those players ended up with him making an awkward gaffe.
The Hammers co-owner shared a graphic with centre-back Kurt Zouma, deadline-day transfer Nikola Vlasic, Spartak Moscow loanee Alex Kral and PSG shot-stopper Alphonse Areola.
Accompanying the image, a message reads: “We're delighted to welcome four exciting summer signings to east London, adding significant strength and experience to David Moyes' unbeaten 2021/22 squad! dg.”
But the top of the Tweet read “Dave,” which suggested the owner was sent the message to publish to his 193,600 followers.
And the Hammers faithful were left in stitches at the gaffe, with one saying: “David Gold forgetting to delete “David,” from the beginning of this tweet is so on brand for him. Just perfect.”
Do you think West Ham can break into the top four? Let us know in the comments section.
Another commented: “You’re meant to delete the first bit David. dg.”
While a third added: “It's all going too well for west ham atm. Needed something like this to bring us back down to earth.”
Gold is not the first in football to make this error, following in the footsteps of former Sunderland forward Victor Anichebe.
After losing 1-0 to the Hammers in October 2016 , the 32-year-old – who was without a goal for 18 months – was asked to post a response on his Twitter page.
He was sent a message that read: “Can you tweet something like:
“Unbelievable support yesterday and great effort by the lads! Hard result to take! But we go again!”
With Anichebe putting the whole message online, it quickly went viral with fans copying the trait.
Gold’s latest social media gaffe, though, can be added to the list that Daily Star Sport put together of football stars slipping up on Twitter.
