Technical director was board decision

4 Aug, 2023
written by Sean Whetstone

West Ham technical director Tim Steinden was not a personal Daniel Kretinsky appointment, it is fairer to say the whole board of West Ham directors decided as a group that something needed to be done after a poor return on investment last summer.

6foot2 understands that Daniel Kretinsky is very hands off at West Ham and makes a conscious effort to avoid interfering with day to day running of the club,

His 27% investment of West Ham holding company is mostly at arm’s length with his trusted advisors sitting on the two boards.

West Ham is one of over one hundred companies he has invested in, and he just doesn’t have the time to get involved in the day-to-day decisions.

Daniel Kretinksy is busy building his European company empire on the back of his Czech energy group, his investment in France alone could reach £3.5 billion this year and his focus on his multi-billion investment portfolio as a whole.

  1. Any idea if the Star and Mail reports today of Moyes and Steinden “Coming to blows” is genuine?
