Gold suffering from pneumonia

Published Add your comment

West Ham co-chairman David Gold is "very poorly" with pneumonia, according to his daughter Jacqueline.

The 76-year-old and fellow former Birmingham owner David Sullivan took over at Upton Park in January 2011. Gold, who needed hospital treatment for cholangitis and septicaemia in March 2011, was taken ill after West Ham's FA Cup third-round clash with Manchester United.

On Tuesday night his daughter Jacqueline posted on her Twitter account, @Jacqueline_Gold: "Have taken my father into hospital. I think he's learnt a very harsh lesson - not to go to football with bronchitis, now has pneumonia!"
