Daniel Kretinsky invested £150million in West Ham

Daniel Kretinsky has apparently made an initial investment of £150million into West Ham.

Claret and Hugh claim that this won’t be the Czech billionaire’s only investment, and he has big plans for the club.

His other club Sparta Prague could become a feeder club for the Irons, while the club are expected to make a few “important” signings over the next two years.

Their club source said: “He’s a very clever businessman and hasn’t invested in this club to see it stand still. We are all very enthusiastic to start work together and believe the future is very bright indeed.”

Big day for the Irons.

Kretinsky clearly wants to see the Irons grow as a club, so Wednesday the 10th of November could go down in the Hammers’ history as a huge day.

The fact he wants to invest in new players is very exciting, and it will be fascinating to see how the 46-year-old works alongside David Moyes and Rob Newman.

£150million for a 27% stake in a club like the Irons, who are on an upward trend, is really a bit of a bargain, and the future looks very bright.

Kretinsky already owns a football club, so he has the experience, and it is clear that he intends to put his money where his mouth is and invest in the club, which is exactly what Irons supporters want to hear.

It will be intriguing to see what happens in January, but Kretinsky could provide Moyes with the funds he needs to strengthen the squad and keep up the top-four challenge.

In other West Ham news, the Irons are looking at a new centre-back in January after Ogbonna’s injury.
