Antonio delivers a message to West Ham United fans

The relationship between West Ham United supporters and the club is quite fragile right now due to the unsavoury scenes that took focus away from the team’s 3-0 loss to Burnley.

At the London Stadium, a handful of supporters made their way onto the pitch to protest against the board, which is comprised of co-owners David Gold and David Sullivan, as well as vice-chairwoman Karren Brady.

Abuse was hurled towards the directors’ box by groups of fans in the ground and chaos ensued, with one pitch invader being forced to the ground by club captain Mark Noble.

The midfielder has tried to get the supporters back onside by sending a message of togetherness, and now Michail Antonio has given it a go.

While speaking to the club’s official website, the 27-year-old said:

“The message is ‘Don’t give up on us’ as in the situation we’re in, we’re going to need them. It’s not just us or just them in this situation, we’re all in this situation together so we’ll keep fighting and keep pushing together.”

After the international break, the Hammers will take on Southampton away at St Mary’s, and overall they have a tough run-in considering that they face Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester City and Manchester United before the season comes to a close.
