Royston: I'd play in goal!

21 March 2014

Drenthe committed to the team

Royston Drenthe has said he would play anywhere for the Royals, even if he had to don the goalie gloves!

The Dutchman has received praise from manager Nigel Adkins in recent weeks, who said the former Real Madrid man had 'turned a corner' following an excellent recent spate of form. 

"I'm playing in any position the gaffer wants me to. For me, it's not a problem if he wants me to play as goalkeeper!" said Drenthe.

"I will do it for the team because we all want the same beautiful thing, to be in the Premier League. Our heads aren't going down, we are only looking forward. We just keep fighting for the next game, and we want more points and more wins at Madejski Stadium."

The 26-year-old also announced he feels very much at home at Reading, and is looking forward to a potentially dramatic climax to the season.

"I want to keep fighting, I want to get this club as high as possible. The club is in my heart. It's not about me, it's about our team spirit and the whole club. Scoring is not the most important thing, you have to work hard for the team. I had a good week, I played in four good games, I hope that I can keep going down this line. That's the most important thing to me, my future and my team."
