Twente are then hoping to appoint Fred Rutten, who was sacked from his position with Feyenoord last week.

Schreuder has been in charge officially since 2014, but has come under fire from fans, sponsors and the owners after terrible performances on the pitch, which saw the club finish outside the European play-off places, even without the six point deduction for money troubles.

The big problem for the cash-strapped club is that Schreuder has a contract until 2019, and Twente do not have the funds to pay for the compensation that he could ask for when sacked. Club president Aldo van der Laan is hoping Schreuder will stand aside, but they may need investment from an external source if he digs his heels in.
