His name is Ludo Miklosko, and it's gonna cost loads

West Ham legend Ludek Miklosko revealed tonight how he has been asked to pay for his own tickets to see this weekend's Premier League clash with Chelsea.

The former goalkeeper, who made more than 300 appearances for West Ham between 1990 and 1998 was speaking to fans at an event in Hornchurch this evening.

Miklosko, who having retired later returned to West Ham as a goalkeeping coach, explained how he is back in the UK on a temporary basis as mentor for a group of young Czech players.

Having recently spent a week at Manchester United, where he and his party were allowed to watch the first team train throughout, 'Ludo' was then given complimentary tickets by both Arsenal and Tottenham for his entire party - plus a private box by the Gunners.

However when he approached West Ham to arrange tickets for this weekend's derby with Chelsea, Miklosko was told that he would have to pay the full price - around 70 per ticket - for all nine members of his party.

He also revealed that the club had already charged him, in full, for a stadium tour on Wednesday.

Despite his obvious disappointment, Miklosko, who was joined on stage at the event by former players such as Tony Gale, Julian Dicks and John Moncur refused to criticise the club when asked for his thoughts on the matter.

Many fans, however, are rather less reluctant to make their opinion known - and some have already taken to social media in order to express their disappointment at the club's apparent lack of goodwill towards a player who continues to be held in such high regard by the supporters.
