Managing director Paul Aldridge has spoken of his 'astonishment' after Alan Pardew was charged with improper conduct by the FA following West Ham's 1-0 win over Arsenal last weekend.
Pardew - along with Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger - has been accused of 'aggressive and confrontational behaviour' after Marlon Harewood struck the winning goal in the final minute of the game, which prompted wild celebrations all around the ground.
But Hammers MD Aldridge has slammed the charge, whilst confirming that Pardew 'has the full backing of the board'.
Talking on whufc.com, he said:
"West Ham United are astonished by this charge. We believe Alan Pardew did no more than celebrate in a passionate manner following a crucial goal in a London derby.
"Alan Pardew has the full backing of the board with regards to this charge, which will be defended vigorously."
