Shaka Hislop Interview

Former Reading goalkeeper Shaka Hislop talks to The Tilehurst End Podcast about his time at Elm Park plus tales from throughout his 15 year career in the game. 

Shaka spends 45 minutes breaking down his Reading career, from a surprising first impression of Elm Park, to his thoughts on what made the 93-95 team so successful plus what he thinks about this rather interesting kit choice.

Beyond that we touch on his wider career that saw him play in the Premier League for a decade, what he thought on his return to the Madejski Stadium on an emotional September 11th 2001 and why he fell out with Jack Warner.

A massive thanks to Shaka for giving us his time and you can follow him on Twitter @ShakaHislop.
