    Club statement: Brian McDermott

    Board makes difficult decision to relieve manager of his duties

    After careful consideration, the board of Reading Football Club have taken the difficult decision to relieve Manager Brian McDermott of his duties.

    We would like to sincerely thank Brian for all his hard work since his return to the club in December 2015 and wish him well in his future career.

    The board of Reading Football Club will now undertake a rigorous recruitment process over the next few weeks to identify the right man to lead this club forward and into the 2016-17 season. The club will make a further announcement to our supporters in due course.

    Former Holland defender Jaap Stam has been linked with the manager's job at Reading FC. Reports from Holland claim the Dutchman has had talks with Royals about becoming the club's new boss. The 43-year-old has most recently been assistant coach with Ajax and is reportedly eyeing up a job in England. Stam has worked before with Royals new technical director Brian Tevreden.





    Thoughts (if any)?

    I liked the bald bloke but i think your owners are like the ones we had 5 years ago when they believed we should be playing in Europe. Yap Spam is a gamble as he has done nothing in English football as a manager and may find it hard. Not sure TBH as he could be gone by Xmas or do Okay. It's a bit of a unknown thing. But one thing i will say is your new owners are a bit weird.
    I do notice that you are copying QPR again by now going Dutch? What next 3 thick hoops on your kit? <laugh>
