Federici: Best is yet to come

12 January 2015

Goalkeeper has more to give

Adam Federici believes he is yet to reach his peak in football, even after celebrating his player of the month award with a man of the match display against Middlesbrough.

The Australian international pulled off a string of sensational saves to frustrate the visitors at Madejski Stadium, but is insistent that he has plenty more to offer.

“I’ve said it before – I don’t think I’m playing my best football yet,” declared the 29-year-old.

“I've got that all to come and I’m looking forward to the future. I want to go to the next World Cup and I’ve got a few goals. There’s a lot to look forward to, I’m a hard worker and always trying to work on my game.”

Naturally Reading’s number one wasn’t taking all the credit for back to back clean sheets, and was keen to praise the team’s defensive unit as a whole.

“Saturday was a tough game, they’re a top quality side looking for promotion and we had to work hard for our clean sheet. The defence has been brilliant, I wasn’t involved last weekend but watching it they were incredible, I don’t think Mikkel had a shot to save so play to them to go away from home and keep a clean sheet and come back here to keep another one. It’s nice to get that solidness about the team, we’re defending from the front and back.”
