Theo Bos has been relieved of his duties as head coach with immediate effect. This decision was triggered by recent disappointing results.
The 45-year old trainer had been employed in Arnhem as the manager/head coach since January 2009. Before that, he had been a player, youth team coach and assistant manager.
The technical director, Ted van Leeuwen, stated: “We have taken this decision with a heavy heart and we remain grateful for all Theo’s efforts for Vitesse. There was – and still is – a great deal of respect here for Theo Bos as a player, as a person and as a coach. Theo will always be welcome at his club.”
Theo Bos said, “Of course, I’m extremely disappointed and I think it’s a pity I wasn’t given more time, because my feeling is that we were on the right track. But it wasn’t my decision; I’ve been in the football business long enough to know that. It’s a shame that my time as Vitesse’s manager is over, but it certainly doesn’t mean the end of my managerial career.”
Vitesse will start looking for a new manager immediately. Assistant manager Hans van Arum and goalkeeping coach Raimond van der Gouw have been asked to take on these duties in the interim.
