Coppell remains fully committed to Reading job

Reading boss Steve Coppell insists recent comments have nothing to do with his commitment to the job.

"We'd just been beaten at Fulham and somebody asked me a flipping question asking if I was enjoying it," said Coppell. "Am I enjoying it? We'd just been beaten. So I went completely the other way.

"The actual bones of the job, I really, really enjoy. I get excited by preparing teams to try to win games. And when it happens it's a real buzz, it's a drug. When it doesn't happen, you go searching for the solution. That's what we're doing now.

"Football management is easy when you're winning. When you're losing, that's when you get old and you work harder. Ask Fergie."
