Royals chairman Sir John Madejski is confident the Royals will bounce straight back up to the Premier League and has praised the owners appointment of Nigel Adkins.
Reading's owner Anton Zingarevich made the choice to sack Brian McDermott in April, a decision which the 72-year old admitted he would not have done. Despite this, Madejski has been very impressed with the short tenure of Nigel Adkins and believes he has the abilities to get the Berkshire side back into the Premier League.
Speaking to the Reading Chronicle, Madejski said: 'I think Anton has chosen really well with Nigel, I really do. I think he's a very enthusiastic, able person who can get us back into the Premier League. It's a different type of football that he plays and Anton didn't just make his mind up overnight.'
'Now we can start building our team over the summer. We've got a new manager and we have to recognise that he's got his plans. He's been working with the team for a month or so. He knows how it all works and exactly what he's got to do. Hopefully we can fight and get back into the Premier League next season.'
Madejski also spoke about how Anton is abiding by the 'Reading way', but I think this ethos is slowly dying, and not necessarily for the worst. We are seeing the slow transition from the Reading way of doing things, the sacking of Brian was the beginning of the end for this and Madejski leaving the club as chairman will finish this 'Reading way'.
