Hammers investor on a high after title win

Daniel Kretinsky is reported as being delighted following Sparta Prague winning  the Czech league title for the first time in nearly a decade.

A goalless draw was enough for the Spartans to win their 13th domestic league title since 1993. A goalless draw away at FC Slovácko  last week confirmed their title with arch-rivals Slavia Prague in second place with the season ending on Sunday.

6foot2.co.uk reports Kretinsky was present at the home game to watch Sparta fans storm the FC Slovácko stadium pitch to celebrate the win; a victory parade is expected in Prague.

Earlier this season Sparta’s co owner Kretinksy was accused of visiting the match official’s dressing room at half time during a Sparta Prague match against Brno..

Social media account Czech Football alleged “he behaved like a blatant idiot, pulling off the same trick as a man facing charges of up to 9 years.”
The Twitter account explains his behaviour could be punished according to the amended disciplinary code, whereby whoever enters the refs’ room faces a 3-month ban or a 50k fine (roughly €2,000)
The incident was recorded in the official match record as noted by the referees.
Over the weekend Kretinsky told the Times he has an emotional connection to West Ham adding that the Claret shirts are close in colour to those of Sparta Prague.
