After it was widely reported throughout yesterday, Reading Football Club have officially released a statement to confirm the departure of manager Jose Gomes. The brief statement confirms that the club took the decision to sack Gomes after a return of just two wins from the opening 11 games of the new Championship season. There is no news just yet on who the club intend to bring in to replace Gomes, although former Wales, Blackburn Rovers, Manchester City, Fulham, Queens Park Rangers, Stoke City and Southampton manager Mark Hughes remains favourite:
Reading Football Club can announce that Jose Gomes has left his position as first team manager.
Gomes joined the club at the end of December 2018 and successfully steered the club away from the threat of relegation.
However, following just two wins in the first 11 league games in 2019-20, owner Mr Yongge Dai has made the difficult decision to part company with Gomes and make a change at first team level.
We would like to sincerely thank Jose for his hard work during his tenure as manager at Reading Football Club and we wish him the very best of luck in his future career.
The club will make no additional comment at this time but will provide further updates as soon as possible.
