Hoddle set for return to football management with Reading

Steve Claridge by Steve Claridge / 23 December 2009, 10:29

The rumours emerging from the Madjeski Stadium suggest that Glenn Hoddle may be set to make a return to football management by taking over at Reading. It is believed that The Royals have spoken to Hoddle and expected to offer him the job which was made vacant following the dismissal of Brendan Rodgers last week.

Hoddle has been out of management since leaving Wolverhampton Wanderers in 2006, during which time he has set up an academy in Spain helping to coach players released from professional clubs as YTS' in order to prolong their careers and potentially give them a second chance in finding another club. However, this venture has not stopped the former Spurs legend from being linked with just about every managerial vacancy in the past three years.

If Hoddle does take over at the Madjeski then it will be the sixth club that he has managed in the English football league, having managed Swindon, Chelsea, Southampton, Tottenham Hotspur and Wolves as well as manager of the England national team. His greatest achievement was probably guiding Swindon Town to the Premier League in 1993, together with an FA Cup final appearance with Chelsea in 1994 and League Cup final appearance with Spurs most recently in 2003.

Despite his three year absence, Hoddle has always maintained that he would like to return to management if the right opportunity arose and the job at Reading could work well for both parties. The Royals currently sit just above the relegation zone in The Championship but a squad of talented players and Hoddle's coaching skills and eye for talent should soon see the Berkshire club battling at the right end of the table once again.

Hoddle is currently 7/2 with Victor Chandler in the odds to be next Reading manager (Wednesday morning) but expect that price to be gone if the rumour is true and gathers momentum.

Next Reading Manager Odds (Victor Chandler)
Gareth Southgate 11/4
Brian McDermott 3/1
