Paolo di Canio feels he's out of the running for the Reading job.
However, Di Canio told BBC Sport: "It was just a coincidence. I was there only to watch the game.
"I was sat with Stuart Pearce at Reading and we had some discussions about the game.
"I want to watch games at the top level and [the Madejski Stadium] was full of passion, so it was good to go there.
