Playing career

Reynierse was born in Rhenen[1] and started playing football as an attacking midfielder with Eerste Divisie club EVV Eindhoven in 1979.[5][6] After making 124 league appearances, he moved to fellow Eerste Divisie side FC VVV in 1984.[5][6] During the 1984–85 season, he helped the club achieve promotion to the Eredivisie.[5][6] Reynierse saw VVV avoid relegation during the 1985–86 season, and they subsequently accomplished two consecutive fifth-place finishes during the 1986–87 and 1987–88 seasons.[5] During this time, he played alongside future Dutch international Stan Valckx.[5] However, they were relegated at the end of the 1988–89 season.[5][6] After one more Eerste Divisie season, Reynierse retired from professional football in 1990, having made 188 league appearances for VVV and 312 in total.[5][6]

Managerial career

In 1986, Reynierse started his managerial career with VVV, even before he had retired as a player.[1] After his retirement, he became head of academy.[5][6] In 1994, he became head coach at the request of the board, who were looking to replace outgoing manager Frans Körver.[4][7] After one season, he returned to his former post as head of the academy.[5][6] In 1998, he moved to PSV Eindhoven to fulfill the same role,[8] which he eventually did for three years.[1][5][6]

In 2001, Reynierse signed with the Royal Dutch Football Association,[9] where he would become the manager of several national youth teams.[1] In 2004, he coached the Netherlands women's national football team on an interim basis for a total of four games.[5][6] As assistant of Netherlands national under-21 football team head coach Foppe de Haan, Reynierse helped Jong Oranje to win the 2006 and 2007 UEFA European Under-21 Championships and to reach the quarter-finals at the 2008 Summer Olympics.[1][6] Aside from managing national youth teams, Reynierse also worked as youth scout and as developer of the youth academies of Dutch professional football clubs.[1]

On 1 June 2016, VfB Stuttgart announced that Reynierse and Olaf Janßen would become the assistants of new head coach Jos Luhukay,[10] starting from 1 July.[11] However, on 15 September, Luhukay parted ways with Stuttgart on mutual agreement, and Reynierse was also released from the club.[12]

On 8 January 2018, he joined Sheffield Wednesday to become assistant to new manager Jos Luhukay.
