Royals Manager Brian McDermott has quickly established himself as one of the most successful managers in the club's history despite being there over 18 months.
The former Slough Town manager took over the Royals in January 2010, hovering around the relegation zone and in the space of 4 months, he managed to turn them into play-offs contenders. He also led them to an FA Cup quater-final, beating Liverpool at Anfield in the process and finished in a highly credible 9th position.
The 2010/11 season was also considered a success for McDermott, leading the Royals to a 5th placed finish and masterminding them to Wembley. Only for them to lose out in the play-off final to Swansea 4-2.
McDermott, who was a winger in his playing career, enjoyed a successful playing career which started off with Arsenal and also saw him play for Swedish team IFK Norrköping in which he won Player of the Year in their respective league.
