Madejski proud of Sigurdsson success at Tottenham

Reading chairman John Madejski is proud to see Gyfi Sigurdsson succeeding at Tottenham.

Madejski proudly says Sigurdsson represents "the Reading way".

He told the London Evening Standard: "We grow our own and have produced some very good players through our academy. Sigurdsson is a great example of this. He came here at 14, went through our youth academy. We sold him in the summer of 2010 to Hoffenheim for a substantial amount of money. We didn't particularly want to sell him but had to. It helped save the club that season."
