Boss hails 'superb leader'

10 July 2013

Adkins delighted with Jobi McAnuff

Nigel Adkins has been very impressed with Royals skipper Jobi McAnuff since the manager arrived at the club in March.

Speaking highly of Jobi, who is preparing for his fifth season at Madejski Stadium, Adkins highlighted the captain's first-rate leadership qualities and his exceptional interaction with his fellow professionals.

"Jobi McAnuff, what a great captain he has been since I’ve joined," said the boss. "You can see he’s got superb leadership qualities, and going away from home for pre-season, his attitude has been top drawer.

"The way he talks to the younger players and senior players has been top drawer. I’m really pleased about Jobi."

McAnuff and the Royals return to match action this Saturday against Wycombe Wanderers - with the friendly rearranged to be played at Hogwood Park behind closed doors.Click here for more info.
