West Ham United try to get fans on board with Arnautovic tweet

A tension that has been brewing between the West Ham United board and the fans reached boiling point a couple of weeks ago.

A handful of separate pitch invasions disrupted the team’s 3-0 defeat to Burnley at the London Stadium.

Club captain Mark Noble took matters into his own hands by grabbing one supporter and throwing him to the floor.

In response, the club promised to take serious action against those involved in the unsavoury scenes, as well as strengthen security for their next round of home matches.

Plenty of supporters are still angry with hierarchy of the club, which consists of co-chairmen David Gold and David Sullivan, as well as vice-chairwoman Karren Brady.

Last week, David Moyes’s team did not play a competitive match and spent a few days at a warm-weather training camp in Miami.

The Hammers will not play against until after the international break, but in the meantime, the club’s social media team are trying to get the fans onside.

A quote from fan favourite Marko Arnautovic was posted on West Ham’s Twitter feed in a bid to unite the club.
