Remarkable news from Nijmegen: Ted van Leeuwen seems to be returning to football at the age of 68. According to Omroep Gelderland, last season at FC Twente technical director will work at NEC.
Van Leeuwen left at FC Twente at the end of April 2020 and so after a sabbatical of almost ten months, reports Omroep Gelderland. NEC gets a technical director after more than two years. Remco Oversier held that position until December 2018, but left because of a difference of insight with Managing Director Wilco van Schaik. The same Van Schaik took over the technical leadership since then, but will be joined by Van Leeuwen.
The director in De Goffert will be Van Leeuwens fourth domestic job: the former journalist previously worked at AGOVV, Vitesse and FC Twente. He also worked abroad at Valletta FC (Malta), Anorthosis Famagusta (Cyprus) and Esbjerg (Denmark).
