West Ham United joint-chairman David Sullivan and David Gold issued a statement to the club’s fans after the 3-0 loss to Southampton on Sunday.
The Hammers have had a very poor start to the campaign. After finishing in 7th place last season, their best ever finish in the Premier League, they now sit in the relegation zone with just three points in six matches. Sullivan and Gold issued a statement on the club’s website on Monday.
“There is no question that this has not been the start to the season that we were looking for but rest assured we are doing everything we can to fix the situation,” Sullivan and Gold said in the statement.
“The facts are there for everyone to see. We know we are letting in too many goals and not scoring enough, but be assured we will sort the problems out.
“There have been factors which have contributed to the poor start with injuries to key players and some key decisions which have gone against us.
“But we are not going to make excuses and know that Slaven and his team will be working even harder on the training ground this week to get things right.
“We have got to remain positive. These are the same players that helped us enjoy such a memorable final season at the Boleyn Ground.
“We know this is a difficult time for our supporters at the moment but we want to thank you personally and wholeheartedly for staying with the Club.
“We will turn our season around.”
