McDermott backs prudent spending

Published Add your comment

Reading boss Brian McDermott has backed owner Anton Zingarevich over his refusal to loosen the purse strings in response to the club's precarious position in the Barclays Premier League.

The Royals are anchored to the foot of the table following Monday's 5-2 defeat by Arsenal with midfielder Jimmy Kebe insisting they are a "good Championship team trying to compete in the Premier League". McDermott is targeting two or three new arrivals with top-flight experience for the January transfer window, but insists Zingarevich will not break the bank to sign them.

"We're never going to put the club in a situation where it will be full of debt," the Reading manager said. "This club has never been full of debt. We don't work that way."
