Next season sees Anton Zingarevich takeover the football club that John Madejski has transformed with huge backing from his own back pocket, and I’m sure Reading supporters will be eager to know what the 30 year-old Russian has in store for the Premeirship new boys.
It seems that Zingarevich plans to build on what his predessor created and take Reading to the next level both on and off the field. The Slough and South Bucks Observer quote the Russian Billionaire as stating:
“We have already started looking at upgrading the academy and the training facilities.
“Also, if we stay in the Premier League the first year we will aim to upgrade the stadium. There are a lot of things we can do, there is a lot of potential.”
He also made clear his plans to spend to ensure The Royals have the best possible chance of retaining their Premeirship status,
“We will be looking to bring in new players, it’s the Premier League now. We’ve been scouting for the past two or three weeks and we already have a shortlist, so we will see what happens.”
Now these may be excatly the sort of comments you’d expect from a new owner eager to gain the support of the club’s fans, and not the basis for a rivoting read.
What is not so common is the attractivess of Mrs Zingarevich, Reading fans can only hope their new owner is as successful on the pitch as he is off it.
