Reading CEO, Dayong Pang, has spoken publicly for the first time since the club's relegation to affirm the owner's commitment.

Arriving at the club back in 2020, Pang is a close associate of owner Dai Yongge and replaced former figure Nigel Howe at the club.

Last speaking in 2021 after the club accepted a six-point deduction for breaching Profit and Sustainability regulations, he has come out again as the club announce that the women's side are set to work on a part-time basis after WSL relegation.

Reading Chronicle:

Working alongside former player and manager, Mark Bowen, to attempt to get the club back into the Championship- supporters are concerned at the lack of communcation from Yongge.

Having never conducted an interview, and just referred to as a 'private person' the businessman has overseen two points deductions and two relegations since his 2017 arrival.

Speaking on Yongge's committment, Pang commented: "Our owner, Mr Dai Yongge, has his full focus concentrated on our club’s rebuild. He is fully committed to consolidating our efforts into a sensible and sustainable reset, designed to bring success back to RG2.”

The Royals are yet to appoint a first-team manager since Paul Ince's sacking in April.
