Nottingham Forest journalist Daniel Taylor has been sharing some details surrounding the club’s chief executive Ioannis Vrentzos and his current situation. 

This comes after Taylor made an appearance on a recent episode of The Athletic’s Forest-themed podcast Two Stars where he spoke about a range of topics concerning the Championship club.

An easy one to kick off our quiz on the 2020 summer transfer window in the EFL, which player left Birmingham City to join Borussia Dortmund?

After it was recently reported that Vrentzos is considering his role within the club ahead of a summer review that could lead to changes behind the scenes, Taylor had this to say on the matter. (2.27)

He said: “Forest are accepting that the story is true, and I think if a man in that position is considering his position that normally means that he probably is going to leave.

“Certainly in Greece, there’s a strong feeling that he’s going to go back to Athens and maybe work somewhere else in the Marinakis empire.

“This side, it’s a little bit fluffy, I suppose there’s all sorts of options apparently that are open, one of which is that he continues but maybe takes a sort of slightly lesser role, which seems a bit strange, I don’t really see how that would help.

“Another option, which seems even stranger is that he might go back to Greece and carry on doing it in a dual responsibility, which again, you kind of think well, what benefit is that going to be for Forest?”

On the pitch, Forest ended the 2020/21 campaign in 17th place of the Championship table with 52 points after winning 12, drawing 16 and losing 18 games throughout the season (per BBC Sport).

TIF Thoughts on Paul Taylor’s comments on Vrentzos…

Taking into account what Taylor said about the situation, it sounds like while Vrentzos could alter his current position at the club, it seems that he will still be involved with them but just in a different aspect to how he is now.

Are you concerned by Vrentzos' current situation?

Yes

No

No

Given how Chris Hughton’s side failed to reach higher than 15th place at any point during their latest Championship campaign, perhaps a change at the top of the club could benefit them for next season to freshen things up.
