  • David Sullivan said his children told him not to sign Jose Fonte and Robert Snodgrass

"My kids begged me not to sign them".

West Ham's move from Upton Park to the Olympic Stadium has proved unpopular with most of the club's fans, and, despite investing heavily in several experienced players, the club's form has been pretty miserable over the a year ago and a half.

The Hammers were beaten by a late David Silva victor last time out as they lost 2-1 to league leaders Manchester City at the Etihad on Sunday.

"Well, I'm not really the director of football", he told The Guardian. Sam said he'd take him on loan but he wouldn't buy him for £10m. "Again I've supported the manager".

Sullivan said that former West Ham manager Slaven Bilic wanted him to sign Marko Arnautovic, Joe Hart, Javier Hernandez and Pablo Zabaleta before the start of the season, so he went and signed those players.

His future at the Olympic Stadium looks bleak but he'll still get paid the remaining two-and-a-half years of his contract.

"Maybe going forward we won't".

"In addition, I want only to pick players who are 100 per cent fit".

That is the chairman of the club talking about players who are now employed by West Ham.

'Being in hospital over Christmas is not nice, so it's important that we can bring a smile or a bit of laughter to their faces. They won't be old journeymen, they will be young players.

"I'm very involved with physically bringing in the players", he said. "They won't be 32".

Snodgrass, now on loan at Aston Villa, rightfully hit back on social media.

And West Ham captain Mark Noble also joined team-mates Andy Carroll and Aaron Cresswell in hosting patients from Richard House Children's Hospice at the club's London Stadium.

He at least found the amusing side of it though.
