Sparta’s Kotalik rejects Kretinsky-Roma links

The name of Daniel Kretinsky has become popular amongst Roma supporters over the last 24 hours. The Czech lawyer and part-owner of Sparta Prague was linked yesterday with a potential takeover of Roma – today, the general manager of Sparta Prague, Adam Kotalik, spoke to TeleRadioStereo and denied the rumors. These are his words:

“Kretinsky and Roma? I have no information on this. The president is focused weekly on his club. He denied to the Czech media last week about wanting to buy any other club.”
