Stoke City could turn to former Reading boss as pressure builds on Nathan Jones

Published

on

Stoke City would consider appointing Jose Gomes as their new manager if they decide to sack Nathan Jones.

Pressure is growing on the former Luton chief with the Potters second from bottom in the Championship and four points from safety having lost ten of their 14 league games this season.

And, according to the Sun (31 October, page 58), the Stoke hierarchy are fans of Gomes, who is out of work since he was sacked by Reading earlier this month.

The paper states the Portuguese coach is keen on working in England again and has already turned down job offers in his home country.

Even though he endured a poor start to the current campaign with the Royals, leaving them in the bottom three when he departed, Gomes did help keep them in the Championship last season.

However, any decision on Jones isn’t thought to be imminent, as he should be in the dugout for Monday night’s game at home to West Brom.

Would Jose Gomes be a good appointment for Stoke?

Yes

Yes

No

No

After that, Stoke have a potentially huge clash against fellow strugglers Barnsley ahead of the November international break.

The verdict

This would be a very interesting appointment as appointing someone who was sacked by a Championship side last month normally wouldn’t go down well and I can’t imagine Stoke fans would be too excited by this.

But, Gomes is a good organiser and he would be working with some promising players at the bet365 Stadium so I think he could get them out of this mess.

Unfortunately for Stoke, it’s become apparent already that this campaign will be about keeping the team in the Championship and Gomes’ experience of that last season could be vital.

Thoughts? Let us know in the comments below.
