West Ham United co-owner David Sullivan has apologized to fans of the club following their 3-2 defeat to Leicester City on Saturday.
It was revealed that Sullivan instructed manager Slaven Bilic to try and stop the side from conceding early goals. However the Hammers did not show any sign of improving their early game defensive frailties as they conceded three goals in the first half.
Sullivan told the West Ham website, “I think all we can do after Saturday’s defeat is say sorry to the supporters.
“To be 2-0 down after seven minutes of any football match, be it in the Premier League or in your local Sunday League, makes it very difficult to get a positive result.”
West Ham are currently nine points safe on the relegation zone and will be looking to improve their performances. As for Leicester, the result extended their recent poor run of form in the League to three straight defeats.
