McDermott Sacked

March 11, 2013 by  

McDermott Sacked, McDermott, 51, had been in charge at the Madejski Stadium since 2009 and sealed promotion to the Premier League last season.

But the Royals have struggled since joining the top flight. They have won just five league matches this season and lost 2-1 to fellow relegation candidates Aston Villa last Saturday to leave them sitting second bottom in the table.

A Reading statement said: “Reading football club has announced today the departure of manager Brian McDermott.

“Owner Anton Zingarevich wishes to place on record his thanks to Brian who had achieved great success with the club since taking over as manager in December 2009.

“Brian gained promotion to the Premier League last year for only the second time in the club’s history thanks to a remarkable run at the end of last season.

“However, in our current situation, owner Anton Zingarevich felt that a change was necessary.

“The search for a successor will start immediately and it is hoped that a new manager will be in place as soon as possible to lead the fight against potential relegation.”
