A year at Reading Football Club is always eventful. The last one threw challenges our way, but we’ve responded to them all with our heads held high.
And our first-team manager Veljko Paunović gave his reflections on what the year has brought him – an opportunity to join the Royals, to lead our squad and to be an ambassador for our club.
“It was revealing to me to find a place to work with great people, a great fanbase and great resources,” said Pauno.
“That was unbelievable for me – I’m so grateful and so happy to our ownership and the Reading family, which gave me a great reception from the first day.
“I want to take advantage of this opportunity to wish everyone all the best and a Happy New Year. Hopefully soon we can get back to normal – but most important is to stay safe and healthy now, and that is my primary wish for everyone.
“On the other side, in terms of the team: we have forged a good spirit and identity of the team. We are consolidating a good group of people who are very talented, and we look to have even more success coming up in 2021.”
