'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Marek Pleased With Coppell Stay

Czech midfielder Marek Matejovsky has revealed his delight at boss Steve Coppell's decision to stay at Reading.

Coppell's future was up in the air following Reading's relegation, but he has recently revealed that he will stay on as Reading manager.

Matejovsky, who was signed by Coppell in January, said, 'I have a contract at Reading and I count on returning there.

'I have been watching news on the internet to know if they are going to sell some players, if coach Coppell will stay.

'I read that he would continue for which I am glad as he brought me into the club and he knows me well.

'It was tough when it was fresh, I tried to get to the Czech Republic as soon as possible, to be with my family, with my friends and could come to some different thoughts.

'But I am still disappointed, I did not expect that at all.

'I have learned to play football in a high tempo. I had to do my maximum in every training session to at least be nominated for the games.

'The competition is big and I am glad that I have had the chance to play so many games in the Premier League.

'It has definitely helped me and I hope I will be a little bit better.'
