Son of West Ham chief Sullivan forced to apologise to captain Nolan

The son of West Ham United co-owner David Sullivan has apologised to club captain Kevin Nolan for an ugly swipe.

Moments after Sam Allardyce's side conceded a late equaliser to Everton in their FA Cup third round tie on Tuesday night, Dave Sullivan took a swipe at Nolan on Twitter.

Writing to more than 7,000 followers, @DaveSulley tweeted: 'Livid how sam says zarate isn't good enough to play for west ham and yet nolan is some how'.

But after having some time to think about his actions, Sullivan returned to Twitter on Wednesday morning to issue an apology to both Nolan and his own family.
