Reading boss Brian McDermott says Jobi McAnuff deserves better from fans.

Reading boss Brian McDermott says Jobi McAnuff deserves better from fans.

Winger McAnuff became only the second player in the club’s 141-year history to lift the trophy when he led his side to the Championship title last season. But the 31-year-old remains unpopular with some Royals fans.

“He is a real leader – ask anyone at the club about what he gives us,” said McDermott.

“Jobi is the second person in 100-odd years to lift the Championship trophy here. He deserves respect. People can say whatever, I can’t be responsible for that. I’m delighted with Jobi, he is a great person and leader.”
