Fraser is busy into his second season with the Arnhem side, but hinted that he will not be signing an extension to his expiring contract which is due to run out in the summer.

Even though he described Vitesse as a “pleasant and warm club”, the 51-year-old went on to say, “but my work has not been made any easier, I will not deny that”.

“Every manager stands for his vision, ideas and attitude,” added Fraser. However, when pressed if he would leave when he could no longer put up with the club, he replied, “Yes. How likely is this to happen? It’s real, but I promised I would say no more about this.”

Doubts for Fraser may have arrived thanks to the alleged involvement of board members into Fraser’s technical policies. Vitesse’s General Manager Joost de Wit said on this issue: “There is no club in the Netherlands where commissioners or other people in the organization do not give their opinion or advice.” He added that only Fraser is responsible for the technical policy as far as the first team is concerned.
