Reading: Sir John Madejski felt Brian McDermott deserved longer as manager

Reading chairman Sir John Madejski says he "didn't agree with the shareholders' decision" to sack former manager Brian McDermott.

Madejski was speaking as the club unveiled former Manchester United and Netherlands defender Jaap Stam as their new manager.

"I wish that Brian had been given a bit longer," Madejski said while sat alongside Stam. "But the shareholders decided it was time for a change."
