Coppell: I could have quit Reading

Reading boss Steve Coppell admits he could easily have left if they had failed to win promotion two seasons ago.

Now celebrating four years in charge, he said: "Realistically, if we hadn't had a decent start (in 2005/6) it would have been common sense to move me on.

"But thankfully we had a great start, a great middle and a great end and for two years we were living the dream at the club.

"I think everyone is aware this season is different. It is a season which requires different qualities which provides us with a huge challenge. I'm really looking forward to that challenge."
