McDermott praises his Russian owner

Published Add your comment

Reading boss Brian McDermott has praised the passion and togetherness Russian owner Anton Zingarevich brings to the Madejski Stadium.

With Zingarevich's compatriot Roman Abramovich wielding his axe yet again at Chelsea, as Roberto Di Matteo became the eighth boss to come and go at Stamford Bridge since the oligarch took charge, there has been criticisms of foreign owners seemingly being unwilling to offer managers time to achieve stability.

But McDermott was praised by Zingarevich ahead of Reading's first league win of the season against Everton last weekend and the Royals' manager reckons unity is important for a successful football club. "The owner, the chairman, the board, the director of football, everyone is in it together, that is my view," McDermott said.
