Brooking Confirms Sullivan Hit by Flying Coin

Brooking Confirms Sullivan Hit by Flying Coin

The London Stadium was an eerie sight as the final whistle approached against Burnley.

Once again, the Hammers faithful had watched on as the side slipped to a third consecutive heavy defeat.

But it was the sight of Trevor Brooking sitting alone in the directors` box, with David Gold and David Sullivan having been forced to vacate their seats for their own safety with a toxic crowd berating the duo`s positions at the club.

However, it seems that amongst the chaotic and disgraceful scenes, David Sullivan was hit by a coin thrown towards him.

Talking to the BBC, Sir Trevor Brooking remarked,

'A coin did hit David Sullivan. I didn't see it but I did have that confirmed."

Before adding about the unsavoury scenes,

'That atmosphere must never come back'.

We`d hope not but something tells me things might get worse before they get better.
