West Ham's Olympic Stadium move could help us become new Man City - Hurst
West Ham United legend Geoff Hurst believes the possible move to the Olympic Stadium could help the club reach great heights.
The Hammers are in prime position to move into the East London from their current home at Upton Park and Hurst sees it as a positive move which could assist the club in gaining as much popularity as Manchester City did after they shifted into the Etihad Stadium from Maine Road in 2003.
"It's not beyond the realms of possibility if we go to the stadium and with the support we've got," said Hurst.
"West Ham has a huge supporter base. If you could make a comparison to another club of a similar stature and I would say Manchester City is it. Look what has happened to them after they went to a new stadium.
"If you were a foreign investor looking to buy a football club then West Ham would be a similar contender in the new stadium.
"More so if you want to buy a London club rather than a team in Manchester. It would be absolutely unbelievable. That could happen.
