Simon Jordan issues fierce response when asked West Ham shirt question

Ex-Crystal Palace owner Simon Jordan has issued a stern response when asked if he would wear a West Ham shirt on Football Shirt Friday.

Responding to a question by Irons fan and head of talkSPORT Lee Clayton on his personal Twitter profile, Jordan was in no two minds at to his thoughts on being seen in Claret and Blue colours for a campaign to raise money for the Bobby Moore Fund.

He wrote: “No! Not if you tied my tongue to the back of [the] bus and dragged me to the West Ham club shop would I adorn one of those.”

No love for the Irons

Jordan is someone who has caused great consternation among the Hammers faithful in recent months.

He’s a greatly divisive figure who is well-known for issuing strong views in his role as a pundit on talkSPORT.

A close ally of Karren Brady, Jordan’s views on the club’s ownership and the reaction of supporters has drawn fan fury.

His views on Declan Rice and his potential next move have also proven unpopular.

The Irons’ 1-0 Championship play-off final defeat to Palace under Jordan’s ownership and subsequent jibes about that hasn’t endeared him to West Ham fans either.

Instead of an Irons shirt, Jordan elected to sport a combination of Norwich City and Newcastle United.

West Ham are obviously too ‘massive’ to be involved.

In other West Ham news, the Irons have made an offer to sign this Brazilian in January, and his world-famous boss is set to grant an exit.
