Tshibola raring for 2016/17 return

Royals midfielder can't wait for the new season and a return to action...

After a lengthy spell on the sidelines last season through injury, Royals midfielder Aaron Tshibola says he will be working hard throughout the summer to hit the ground running in the 2016/17 Championship season.

The 21-year-old is raring to get going and admits he is already wishing for the summer break to come to an end so he can get started again in earnest with the squad.


“I wish the season could start tomorrow and training would start tomorrow,” said the midfielder. “For me now the focus is getting myself into shape, I want to get some good training sessions under my belt, because obviously I had a few good sessions with the lads before they broke up.


“It could have been easy for me to just end it there and go off on holiday but myself and the medical team have set up a good plan to go over in the summer. There is a schedule to train, if that’s by myself, or with the youth team I just want to keep ticking over really.


“I want to make sure I’m ready for next season because I’ve got some catching up to do and there’s not really any time for breaks for me.”


The midfielder has been thankful for the support he has received from the Reading fans whilst returning from injury, saying he is using that backing as an incentive to return a better player, and show the Royals faithful what he has to offer the team.


“Hopefully I’ve still got a lot more to do and give, I’ve shown some glimpses of what I can do last season," continued Tish.  "I would have loved to have shown more, but there is still a lot to come from myself.


“I feel like I owe it to the fans because they’ve been so supportive of me. I hope next season is a good one for me.


"We all aim to do better as a club for next season, everyone wants to be successful. The main focus for me now is to come back and to make sure I’m on the gaffer’s team sheet.”
