Form is temporary, class is Kermorgant. Our former French frontman reflects on his time at Madejski Stadium, and his contribution in that 2016-17 season where the Premier League proved painfully elusive.

Form is temporary, class is Kermorgant. Our former French frontman reflects on his time at Madejski Stadium, and his contribution in that 2016-17 season where the Premier League proved painfully elusive.

Reflecting on that campaign, where Reading hadn't been considered among the favourites (before the season, or even before the play-offs), Yann discusses overcoming the odds all year, only for the season to end in devastating disappointment.

We also hear about Yann's battle with leukaemia as a teenager - being told by the doctors that his football career was over before it began - but defying the odds to make it happen.

And with Leicester City, Charlton Athletic and AFC Bournemouth also on the CV, Yann shares his mixed experiences from before his time at Madejski Stadium.
