Reading’s Brian Tevreden Touted For Move Back To Homeland

Could the man behind the ‘Dutch Revolution’ be packing his bags?

Reading’s technical director Brian Tevreden could depart Berkshire in the near future if The Daily Mail are to be believed, with the publication claiming that he is wanted by Eredivisie side Vitesse Arnhem.

The 35-year-old joined the Royals’ board last year after Nicky Hammond left for West Brom, and earned plaudits after his decision to hire Jaap Stam as manager led to the club reaching the Championship play-off final. He was also the man responsible for bringing in the likes of Liam Moore and John Swift, both of whom have gone on to become key players in RG2.

This summer though, Tevreden has come under a bit of scrutiny with some fans suggesting that his recruitment has left the squad unbalanced, whilst his failure to capture a star striker left many feeling frustrated.

Whilst we have no way of telling whether this rumour is true, it is certainly plausible considering that Vitesse, who defeated Reading 3-2 in pre-season and currently sit fifth in the Dutch top flight, are on the look out for a new director of football after Mo Allach left to join Maccabi Haifa in Israel.

This is not the first time that Tevreden has been linked with another club, as back in March it was reported that Derby County were keen to bring him in yet that never materialised.
