Reading Football Club have announced that Serbian coach Marko Mitrovic has joined Veljko Paunovic's coaching team.

The 42-year-old will reunite with manager Veljko Paunović, having previously worked alongside the new boss at Chicago Fire between 2016-2019.

Talks have been ongoing with Mitrovic for a number of weeks, but his move has been confirmed following the ratification of a work permit application.

Mitrovic has been involved with the first team training this week as the side prepare to face Cardiff City in the Welsh capital tomorrow afternoon (3pm kick-off).

Former Manchester United midfielder Quinton Fortune and Nuno Gomes joined the Reading FC coaching staff earlier this month.
