DG 'very poorly', says daughter Jacqueline

West Ham United co-chairman David Gold is in a stable condition today after being admitted to hospital suffering with pneumonia.

The 76-year-old co-owner was taken to hospital last night, just 72 hours after he watched the Hammers come within minutes of knocking Premier League leaders Manchester United out of the FA Cup.

And according to his daughter Jacqueline, whilst Mr Gold had a comfortable night he is still being closely monitored.

Speaking via her Twitter account, Ms Gold said: "My dad had a good night but is still on strong medication for his condition. He is on very strong antibiotics.

"Hopefully tests will reveal more tomorrow. He is still very poorly but in good hands - and obviously won't be at the game on Saturday."

It is the second time within the space of two years that Gold has been admitted to hospital; in March 2011 he underwent surgery after being diagnosed with cholangitis and septicemia.

Gold, who travels around the country to watch West Ham both home and away has barely missed a game since buying into the club three years ago this month.
