English Championship side Reading has announced that Fortune has joined their club as a first-team coach as of Tuesday. 

 

Fortune, a former Red Devils player, was working as the Premier League giants' Under 23 assistant coach since July 2019. 

Head of United's academy Nick Cox had kind words to say about Fortune as he goes on his new journey.

Everyone at the Academy wishes Quinton the best of luck in his new role. All of our coaches, as well as the players, receive a huge amount of development and this is another example of the type of progress that an individual can make within the Academy system. The Under-23s' promotion was a great achievement for Neil Wood and his staff so we’d like to thank Quinton for his role in that.
