Reading boss Brian McDermott says Jobi McAnuff deserves better from fans.
Winger McAnuff became only the second player in the clubâ€™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.
â€śHe is a real leader â€“ ask anyone at the club about what he gives us,â€ť said McDermott.
â€śJobi is the second person in 100-odd years to lift the Championship trophy here. He deserves respect. People can say whatever, I canâ€™t be responsible for that. Iâ€™m delighted with Jobi, he is a great person and leader.â€ť
