West Ham co-owner Sullivan expresses regret over Carroll signing

David Sullivan, one of the co-owners of West Ham United, has admitted that he would not have signed Andy Carroll if he had known the striker would spend so much time injured, Sky Sports is reporting.

After a successful loan spell last season during which he scored seven goals in 24 games, Carroll moved to Upton Park from Liverpool on a permanent basis for a West Ham club record fee of £15m. However, since then, he has not made a single appearance in any competition, due to a foot injury.


As a result of that, West Ham have struggled in the Premier League this season, as only goal difference keeps them out of the relegation zone going into Saturday’s game at home to bottom club Sunderland. In Carroll’s absence, the Hammers have found scoring goals a problem, as Carlton Cole is the only one of their strikers to have found the net this season.


And Sullivan admits to some regrets over the signing of Carroll. He said: "Had we known he would be out for this long, we would not have signed him. We are not a rich enough club to deal with that. You know any player can get injured, but we can't buy a player knowing he is going to be out for half the season.


"When we signed him we were assured by the medical staff that the very, very latest he would be back was 1 September. That would have meant he would only miss two league games."


"If you ask me the same question at the end of the season, I hope I will be able give you a different answer and say 'Yes, it was the right decision to sign Andy Carroll'’
