Ludo reimbursed for ticket costs

West Ham have reimbursed former goalkeeper Ludek Miklosko after he was asked to pay for his own tickets to see United's Premier League meeting with Chelsea this weekend.

Speaking at a supporters' event in Hornchurch last night, the 55-year-old shocked fans by revealing how he was left out of pocket as West Ham failed to offer him complimentary tickets - as is standard for retired former players.

However a club source told KUMB that since the story broke on social media late last night, they had spoken to Miklosko in order to resolve the "misunderstanding", whilst fully reimbursing him for all associated costs.

The source confirmed that it was West Ham's policy to offer complimentary tickets to all returning players - as will be the case this weekend, when former Hammers such as Ray Stewart will be present at the Olympic Stadium - but admitted that Miklosko's visit had slipped through the net.

The confusion is believed to have been the result of Miklosko using a third party to obtain the tickets on his behalf, instead of approaching the club directly.

* Yesterday, in our earlier story, it was reported that Arsenal granted Miklosko and his party use of an executive box at the Emirate Stadium. For clarification purposes, the private area in question is rented by an agency whom Miklosko represents.
