Matejovsky prepared to bide time at Reading
Reading's new signing Marek Matejovsky admits he is in no rush to get into the starting line-up after his move from Czech side Mlada Boleslav.
"I don't rush, I am glad I have got two chances to taste this league," Matejovsky told iDnes.cz.
Matejovsky came on in with 10 minutes to go against United and admits that he enjoyed the atmosphere at the Madejski.
"You don't enjoy much of the game if you play just 10 minutes, but it was at home and the crowd was roaring all the time," he added.
"Simply an atmosphere you experience only a few times and only in a few places. Of course, the loss spoilt my impression though.
"I was glad that I was even on the bench against United. And I was also satisfied to be there against Chelsea although, to be honest, I expected I could be put on a little bit earlier, when we were 1-0 down.
"After Wednesday's game I spoke with Petr Cech who told me not to be impatient.
"He advised me to work hard in training, to get to know the surroundings and new team-mates as well, to wait for the right time.
"Petr told me it is still better to wait for a chance than to be in the starting line-up a bit early as you can make an error and then it goes on with you.
"I must say that his words have cheered me a lot."
