Reading seem to be edging ever-closer to appointing a new manager, following Paul Clement’s dismissal last week, with Jose Gomes emerging as the leading candidate according to The Mirror.
Gomes is currently in charge of Portuguese side, Rio Ave who have been surprise European contenders in recent seasons, which will certainly come as a surprise to many.
He has worked on a tight budget, which makes the job he has done with the club, even more impressive.
It may come as a surprise to Reading supporters that Gomes has been linked with the vacancy, with many likely not to have heard of Gomes before now.
He would have a tough job on his hands to rescue the Royals this season, with Reading sat just outside of the relegation zone after they picked up a point against Rotherham at the weekend.
We look at the reasons why Gomes would be the perfect appointment for Reading.
