West Ham are set to make a change in the way they make decisions off the field after Daniel Kretinsky’s investment was confirmed.

Claret & Hugh claim that now the Czech billionaire and his business associate are part of the board, decisions will be made through voting.

The board will also set the budget, and if anything goes even £1million over the intended budget, it has to be approved by the board in new strict guidelines.

This seems like a sensible way for the club to operate, although with Kretinsky on board, you can imagine that the budget has gone up considerably.

Sensible approach from the club.

If the Hammers can keep within their budgets and vote for everything, the control of the club should become more spread.

Previously, David Gold and David Sullivan made most of the decisions, but with Kretinsky on board, it appears as if that has changed, which can only benefit the club.

Of course, the Hammers’ budget for the rest of the season remains to be seen, but it is good they have put checks in place to ensure that they don’t go over it.

Now, this might not seem too exciting to fans initially, but it is an important step in the club operating as a successful Premier League side, and should have plenty of long-term benefits.

If Gold and Sullivan’s influence and power have decreased, that can only be a good thing for the Irons going forward, and this should lead to much better decisions both on and off the pitch.

In other West Ham news, a report has detailed a new clause in Kretinsky’s investment in the club.
