Owner and Chairman laud duo
Anton Zingarevich and Sir John Madejski have heaped praise on Brian McDermott and Adam Le Fondre after the duo were named Barclays Premier League Manager and Player of the Month.
These are major achievements – not just for Brian and Alfie but for everyone connected to the first team – and both the owner and Chairman were keen to pay homage to the efforts of all concerned.
Anton said, “I’m delighted that Brian and Alfie have got such deserved recognition for their performances. They will be the first to acknowledge that the awards represent the hard work of a lot of people both on and off the pitch. Over the last month, the manager, the players and the supporters have excelled themselves. It’s not easy to win awards in the Barclays Premier League, so huge congratulations go to both Brian and Adam.”
The Chairman added, “I’m absolutely overjoyed that both Brian and Adam have received these awards for the month of January. It really is a fantastic accolade and as I said to the manager this week, it underpins just how well he and his players are performing. Adam Le Fondre has proved to be an amazing revelation. His spirit and his attitude are a credit to the club - indeed all the players and staff have been very positive over the past few weeks, and I wish them every success going forward.”
