David Gold tweets that Sam Allardyce is the right man to manage West Ham United despite the availability of Paolo Di Canio.

David Gold has taken to Twitter to show his support for West Ham United manager Sam Allardyce.

Earlier, the Hammers co-chairman retweeted posts from fans of the club calling for Paolo Di Canio to take over at Upton Park, following his resignation from Swindon Town yesterday.

This evening, Gold tweeted: "Always interesting to see the different opinions from people on twitter. My view is clear though - Big Sam is our man! dg."

Gold has previously stated that the club will not offer the manager a new contract until they are guaranteed a place in the Premier League next season.

West Ham are currently 11th in the league table, seven points above the relegation zone.
