David Gold sends message to West Ham pair after exit announcement


West Ham vice-chairman David Gold has taken to social media to send a message to Samir Nasri and Toni Martinez after the announce of their release. 

The club will part ways with the pair when their contracts run out at the end of June next month, as confirmed by West Ham’s official club website.

Gold sent the pair a message via social media ahead of their impending release from the London Stadium, minutes after sending a similar message to Carroll and Adrian, who will also be leaving the club at the end of June.

“Leaving the Club at the end of June will be former France international midfielder Samir Nasri, who made six appearances in his half-season stay,” said Gold from his personal Twitter account.

“And Spanish striker Toni Martinez, who featured three times in the FA Cup in January 2018,

“Good luck Samir good luck Toni. dg.”


Nasri and Martinez haven’t had the easiest of times this season for the Hammers, and their failure to impress Manuel Pellegrini has lead to them being released in the coming months, which is a shame but not an unexpected one. Nasri has featured six times in all competitions for the Hammers this season, since his arrival at the club following a ban from football back in January, and has only registered two assists without scoring a single goal in his time with the club. Martinez on the other hand has spent his season on loan in the second Spanish division with CD Lugo, and hasn’t featured once for Pellegrini’s side this season. It’s safe to say that the duo have been rarely used since their arrival at the club, so their exit doesn’t come as much of a surprise. The 21-year old has not had much of a chance to show his ability at the London Stadium this season, and it has certainly come back to bite him. Gold still had the decency to show his respects to the pair however, despite their arguably underwhelming seasons for the Hammers.
