Reading owner gives backing to McDermott

Published Add your comment

Reading owner Anton Zingarevich has dismissed claims he plans to replace manager Brian McDermott, and promised the incumbent full control of signings.

Reports in the build-up to Reading's 2-1 win over Everton had claimed Zingarevich was lining up Dick Advocaat to take charge of the team, while also suggesting the Russian owner had drawn up a list of his own transfer targets. The 30-year-old Zingarevich denied both suggestions.

"The speculation hurts me because it's just not necessary," said Zingarevich, in comments reported by the Daily Telegraph. "It is just nonsense really. I have total faith in McDermott and he has a long-term contract so I don't see any problem."
