9 Reading FC signings that flopped – Do you agree?



PAGE 2/10

Mathieu Manset

We start this list with Mathieu Manset, who stepped up from League Two to the Championship when he joined Reading from Hereford United in the summer of 2010.

However, the striker struggled to really settle at The Madejski, or establish himself in the side, making just 35 appearances and scoring a rather underwhelming five goals in all competitions for the Royals, before loaned to Shanghai Shenhua in February 2012.

Manset subsequently left Reading permanently in the summer of 2012, and has since gone on to play for 12 different clubs in a variety of different countries – including Carlisle, Coventry, Cheltenham and Walsall in England – never making more than a handful of appearances for any of those sides.
