Hahnemann questions commitment of Reading teammates

Marcus Hahnemann has questioned the commitment of some of his Reading teammates after their relegation this week.

"I think some people might not be as devastated as I am - it might be because of personal situations with some guys leaving," he told BBC Radio Berkshire. "But you have to play well to leave and I don't know if a lot of guys did themselves any favours."

Hahnemann insists Steve Coppell must remain as manager and admits Reading deserved to go down.

"We all want Steve to stay. We got into the Premier League and we had a great season in the Premier League with him, so of course we want him to stay," he said.

"You don't need to look at the beginning of the year - you have to look at the last couple of months of the season when we just didn't perform well enough.

"We lost to Fulham at home, drew with Wigan and lost to Spurs, so yes, we beat Derby, but Fulham won four out of five and they deserve to stay up and we deserve to go down."
