West Ham Super Fans thrilled by Daniel Kretinsky interest

This is part of a regular series from our panel of West Ham Super Fans. Each week, our Super Fans will deliver their verdicts on the biggest talking points and news stories around the London Stadium. You can join in the discussion on our West Ham Zone Facebook page.

Czech billionaire Daniel Kretinsky is keen on purchasing a 27 per cent stake in West Ham, according to a report in The Athletic this week.

The report states that a minority stake is a way to get inroads as he plans to eventually buy the club entirely in the future.

There have been talks about GSB selling a stake in the club and it could spell the beginning of them leaving West Ham for good.

On reading this news, the Hammers faithful were thrilled and took to Facebook to voice their pleasure.

They also noticed that there was a Czech wave surrounding the club with three first-team players from the Central European region and now a potential minority stakeholder also coming from there.


The supporters have been sick of the current owners for a while and they would welcome fresh ideas at the highest level.

While this does not completely get rid of GSB, it’s at least a start and in a few years, it could be done if carried out correctly.

We’re not here claiming to be experts on Kretinsky’s plans to revolutionise the club, but it’s certainly good to see some movement happening on this front.

With PAI Capital, there was a lot of talk and very little was happening in terms of getting to a conclusion.

Things seem to be better this time around and hopefully, he gets his stake sooner rather than later.
