Reading Football Club can announce that Gianluca Nani has, by mutual consent, left his role as Sporting Director with immediate effect.
Nani assumed the role with the Royals in September, but it has been agreed that now is the right time for Gianluca to pursue new footballing challenges.
“As the club is now moving in a different direction, I believe it is the right time for me to step away from the role,” Nani said.
“Even though it was only for a short time, I really appreciated my time at Reading Football Club. I met lovely people and great fans who have supported us through a difficult period.
“I would like to thank the staff at the training ground and stadium as well as the players for their support and their efforts. Furthermore, I would like to thank Mr Dai and Ms Dai for the opportunity to work for this great club. All the very best to everyone connected to Reading FC."
Everyone at Reading Football Club would like to wish Gianluca the best of luck in his future endeavours.
