Reading manager Steve Clarke is considering leaving the Berkshire club after only five months in charge, according to FLW sources.
FLW understands that the former West Bromwich Albion manager is unhappy with the lack of control he has at the club, with too much outside interferences hindering his role at the side.
The Royals were defeated 2-1 by Steve Evans’ Rotherham United at the New York Stadium last night, in what was Reading’s fourth consecutive Sky Bet Championship defeat.
Steve Clarke’s men have failed to win a single league game since March 10, when they beat Brighton and Hove Albion 2-1 at the Madejski Stadium.
It has well and truly been a Championship season to forget for the club, with an FA Cup semi-final appearance against Arsenal at Wembley being the only highlight of a bleak 2014/15 season.
Speaking after the match against Rotherham United on Tuesday night, Clarke said to Get Reading: “You are now seeing a team and a squad that is in decay,”
“We lack leaders on the pitch. You can see that.
“You can see when something goes wrong, immediately the first response is to stand away and find a place to hide on the pitch.
The Royals currently sit in 19th place in the Sky Bet Championship, having amassed just 47 points from 45 league games this season.
