Boss Rodgers leaves Reading

16 December 2009 07:45
Reading have announced that manager Brendan Rodgers will leave the club immediately, just six months after joining the Championship strugglers. A brief statement on the official club website read: "Following a meeting this afternoon, the chairman, the board of Reading Football Club and Brendan Rodgers have agreed by mutual consent that Brendan Rodgers will leave with immediate effect." Reading have underachieved this season by most standards, finding themselves in the thick of the relegation battle, and the departure of Rodgers does not come as a huge surprise. The 36-year-old began his coaching career at the Madejski Stadium, becoming the youth team coach after retiring from playing for the club when he was 20.
