Anton wants strong squad

25 June 2013

Owner sets out team strategy

As the Championship season draws closer, owner Anton Zingarevich is aiming for the strongest possible squad.

With Royson Drenthe and Wayne Bridge having already agreed moves to Madejski Stadium, the Royals' summer rebuilding programme is well underway.

Anton said, "From day one that Nigel and I spoke, our view has been the same in terms of the football we want to play and the players that needed to come in.

"What we'd like to achieve is to have a stronger team in the Championship than we had in the Premier League. 

"The recruitment department has put a lot of work into it, as I've said before they scouted more than 900 games this season. 

"We've done a lot of preparation so hopefully for the first game we will already have a group that will be a strong contender."
