It is almost a month since Slavisa Jokanovic was sacked by Fulham, but could he be set for an immediate return to management?
According to the Mail (live blog, 12.19pm), Reading have put Jokanovic on their shortlist as they look for a coach capable of replacing Paul Clement at Molineux.
And it should be no surprise that the Serb is one of the Royals’ top targets. After all, Jokanovic led Fulham to the Premier League as recently as May, while bringing arguably the most exciting attacking football anywhere in the division to Craven Cottage.
The 50-year-old also guided Watford to promotion back in 2015, only to be replaced by Quique Sanchez Flores before the new Premier League season kicked off. So to say Jokanovic has a proven track record in England’s second tier would be an understatement.
The Mail adds that Reading were hoping to appoint Luis Castro, who led Vitoria to fifth in the Primeira Liga last season despite barely spending a penny, but talks broke down on Monday evening.
