Nottingham Forest chief executive Ioannis Vrentzos is considering his position at the club, according to The Athletic.

The senior figure has come under-fire from supporters for his day-to-day running of the football club.

He is a respected figure in the eyes of the club’s owner Evangelos Marinakis and the report claims he could yet stay at the City Ground.

Vrentzos is based in Nottingham but currently spends a lot of time in Athens, despite being the man tasked with running the club on a daily basis.

The talk is that he could now return to Greece to take up another role within the Marinakis empire and wave goodbye to Forest completely.

Another suggested option seems to be that he continues in a senior position but adapts his role which would mean spending more time away from the City Ground.

The report also claims that whatever the chief executive decides, it will have no bearing on Forest’s relationship with Marinakis.

This is good news, right?

It absolutely is and for supporters of the football club this will represent a timely boost.

A lot of the club’s short-termism in recent years with regards to recruitment has been down to Vrentzos and his departure won’t be a bad thing.

It’s also said that it was the Greek businessman who started the ball rolling with Aitor Karanka’s departure.

He claimed that although the club was hanging around the play-off places, they should be challenging for the top-two – making that much clear to the Spaniard.

Nick Randall admitted during a recent Q&A that mistakes had been made and perhaps now would be a good time to try something different.

Forest is a proud club and attracting a proven chief executive with experience of success in English football shouldn’t be too problematic.

A reshuffle at the top of the club would represent a good start to the summer.

With Chris Hughton looking to stamp his authority on the squad, big changes look likely to be made once more.

As a result, it’s probably best if Forest get the future of Vrentzos decided first.
