Sullivan expects Green stay


West Ham United's co-owner David Sullivan says that Robert Green has a long-term future at Upton Park, despite earlier suggesting that the England goalkeeper could be sold this summer.

The 30-year-old still has two years left on his current Hammers contract and Sullivan will weigh up the situation midway through the coming campaign.

He told The Guardian:"All the players with two years to go, we will look at them in January, when there is 18 months to go.

"We will see how they're playing and how the club is doing and we'll see what offers we can put to them.

"I hope Robert does have a long-term future at West Ham. We've got a fantastic new goalkeeping coach who I think will improve him dramatically. You're never too old to learn and I think he'll learn a lot."

Meanwhile, Sullivan backed Green to recover quickly from his horrendous error in England's 1-1 World Cup draw with the USA, adding:"You judge any player over a season, not one incident in one match.

"I'm sure he's got the character (to bounce back from the World Cup) and absolutely he'll get support from West Ham."
