Reading have sacked manager Jose Gomes after just 10 months in charge.
Portuguese coach Gomes departs with the Royals third from bottom and without a win in six Championship games.
He was appointed at the Madejski Stadium in December after leaving Rio Ave in Portugal's top flight.
A club statement said: "Following just two wins in the first 11 league games in 2019-20, owner Mr Yongge Dai has made the difficult decision to part company with Gomes and make a change at first-team level.
"We would like to sincerely thank Jose for his hard work during his tenure as manager at Reading Football Club and we wish him the very best of luck in his future career."
Reading won just eight of 34 Championship games with Gomes in charge.
