Reading boss McDermott welcomes Zingarevich show of support

Reading boss Brian McDermott has heaped praise on club owner Anton Zingarevich.

Despite struggling in the initial couple of months of the season the Russian offered his support to McDermott ahead of last weekend's victory over Everton, amid speculation he was lining up a big name replacement.

"I get on really well with Anton and I know him well enough, he didn't need to come out and say anything, that was up to him to say whatever he had to say," he said.

"I've known him since January and we have been very consistent with each other and have a good relationship.

"It wasn't particularly important to me and I don't think it was particularly important for him to say it - but I appreciate the fact he did say it."
