West Ham United: Fans flock to Daniel Kretinsky claim

West Ham United: Fans flock to Daniel Kretinsky claim -West Ham News

Flocking to Twitter, many West Ham United fans have shared their thoughts after hearing what new minority shareholder Daniel Kretinsky may now have planned.

The Czech billionaire officially completed his purchase of a 27% stake in West Ham on Wednesday, which is estimated to be worth between £180m and £200m (The Telegraph).

Can you name all of these forgotten West Ham flops...who is this Allardyce signing?

Reliable reports suggest that Kretinsky’s involvement with the club could boost David Moyes’ and his ability to spend in the transfer market, with the so-called ‘Czech Sphinx‘ possessing a personal fortune of around £2.9bn.

Becoming a minority shareholder in a deal which will also see him named on the West Ham board of directors, the 46-year-old’s ties with Sparta Prague as co-owner are also viewed as something to keep an eye upon.

Links to their exciting young striker Adam Hlozek have re-emerged as a result of this off-field development, and while not quite going that far, The Telegraph have just lifted the lid on one of Kretinsky’s first plans for West Ham.

They claimed that the Czech magnate ‘will propose a partnership’ between Sparta and the Hammers as a ‘potential player development line’ for Moyes.

With that potentially being the first step towards building a fruitful relationship with the Fortuna Liga giants, it’s little wonder that West Ham fans are excited at the prospect of a budding partnership, with a couple of supporters calling this news ‘exciting’.

Check out some of their best verdicts below.

“Be snapping his arm off to do this as a perfect league to get our players out to develop in the men’s game & also be playing EL football most seasons too. Added benefit will be getting the likes of Hlozek & others as Sparta can “offer” a pathway to the EPL for young Czech players.”
