Ex-Man Utd defender John O'Shea named Reading coach

Former Manchester United defender John O'Shea has returned to Reading as a first-team coach.

O'Shea, who retired as a player after Reading's final game last season, will work alongside manager Jose Gomes and his backroom staff.

Reading manager Gomes told the club website: "John is an intelligent, modest, positive, highly-respected individual who enjoyed a quite remarkable playing career.

"He competed at the very highest level and remained a model professional throughout - and he set a perfect example for our young players to follow last season.

"I am excited to work alongside him again, this time as a fellow coach and I'm delighted he has agreed to join us."
