Ghana Stars Andy Yiadom, Baba Rahman suffer relegation from English Championship with Reading


Ghanaian international defenders Andy Yiadom and Abdul Baba Rahman has suffered relegation from the English Championship with Reading FC.

The two Ghana nationals could do very little to prevent their team from going down to the English League One after the team was deducted six points by the English Football League Board.

Rahman and Yiadom will go down to the third tier league in England with the Blue and Whites outfit as they suffered relegation with a game to go in the league.

With just one match remaining for the season to end and four points behind Cardiff, the team in the safe zone, nothing will change even if Reading wins the last match of the campaign.


Reading’s relegation means they will be playing in the third tier for the first time in 21 years. That last time they were in the division – which was then called Division Two – was in 2001/02.

The six-point was deducted from Reading by the EFL for  violating agreed budget restrictions after a previous breach of the EFL’s profitability and sustainability rules.

Andy Yiadom played 40 games with one assist to his name in the league with Baba Rahman making 18 appearances in the league on loan from English Premier League side Chelsea FC.
