Steve Coppell insists he isn't losing any sleep over the prospect of being sacked at relegation-threatened Reading.
He said: "I have never been bothered about being sacked. It doesn't worry me whatsoever. It is my job to try to win football games and I will try and give it my utmost. Some people think it is life or death but I don't agree with that philosophy. It's a job.
"It was great for Avram Grant in the week to say he did it his way at Chelsea. I cannot be something I am not. I am trying to do the best job I can. If we get good results, brilliant. There are things this season I would do differently in hindsight but I won't lose any sleep over it."
While the Premier League now features a number of foreign owners who do not understand the game, Coppell says he is lucky to have John Madejski as his boss.
He added: "I have a great relationship with my chairman. I am not being patronising, I am not brown-nosing. I am the luckiest man in football as I am left to get on with my job.
"Our relationship is that he leaves me to the football and he deals with the business. We have respect for each other."
