Tevreden Out, Nani In

by genome » 12 Sep 2018 15:53

No, not that Nani... Tevreden leaves for KSV Roeselare, Gianluca Nani (ex West Ham and Watford) replaces him

Apparently Tevreden is "increasingly disillusioned with the direction the club is heading under chief executive Ron Gourlay"

Yikes

Convinced Gourlay is the problem at our football club. He has to go. Good people leaving in their droves.

Our new Sporting Director, Gianluca Nani, said: "I'm really proud to join and now be part of an historic club as glorious as Reading.'

Yes. That's someone who was never ankle-deep in the South Bank effluent gutter.

It's in the E-Po... hence "apparently"

Did he see us at Wembley and assume it was our home ground or something?

Brian was already an advisor for KSV Roeselare the last couple of months.

But this is still something else than an active directors role. How would you guys describe him as a director (or a ceo)?

Interesting stuff.

Love to know what was going on behind the scenes with BT. Great job in Year 1, shocker in Year 2.

Slightly sad to see him go, but our last year's recruitment has been pretty poor

Edit: just read Watts' piece. Clearly was his link to what was going on at the club. Doesn't make great reading

"On Tevreden - I understand he told the #readingfc owners months ago that he couldn’t work with Gourlay. Only agreed to remain until a replacement found. Owners didn’t want to lose him so moved him to Belgium. Morale on the floor behind the scenes at the club with RG in charge."

Definitely one for all the anti-Gourlay posters and gives some weight to their comments

Hope Roeselare don't have some good academy players who can be sent off to the Dutch league for a nice finders fee. Maybe they'll get a few cast offs arriving from Ajax.

A few days ago the Norwich City journo on the Eastern Daily Press, who is well respected, did a piece assessing each championship club's start to the season in which he noted 'Reading's scatter-gun approach to transfers' as a factor affecting our poor start.

It's an arguable point but maybe a correct one given today's development.

This comes as no surprise. I was taken aback at how genuinely downbeat Clement was in his interview after the Wednesday game. It was clear things were not right behind the scenes when he refused to confirm if the boardroom had given him the backing that he needed.

I don’t know Gourlay but some posters on here have alluded to him not being at all liked at the club. I have no idea if this is true but Charles Watt’s comments would suggest things are really grim at the moment.
