West Ham co-owner David Sullivan insists that he wants to retain the services of Robert Green despite the keeper's World Cup howler.
The 30-year-old, whose horrendous error gifted the United States an equaliser as England drew the opening game of their woeful campaign in South Africa, has been linked with a move away from Upton Park after becoming frustrated at not being offered a new contract.
But Sullivan insists he is keen for Green to stay, and told The Guardian: "I hope Robert does have a long-term future at West Ham. 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 the support from West Ham."
