West Ham chairman has clocked up a few retweets after his cheeky dig at Benni McCarthy.

According to the following tweet, the South African striker claimed that women and football “don’t mix” while discussing West Ham’s vice-chairman, Karren Brady.

Having seen the tweet, Gold fired back at McCarthy, who played for West Ham during the 2010-2011 season.

In his time at the club, it was once reported that the former Porto striker has been fined for failing to meet fitness targets.

Judging by his reply, David Gold hasn’t forgotten that.
