Eamonn Dolan: Waiting to see if he will remain in charge of Reading

Dolan, who is head of the Royals' academy, took charge of the team for Saturday's 1-0 defeat at Manchester United.

His future with the first team remains unclear as the Premier League takes a break to accommodate international fixtures but Dolan insists he wants to remain at the Madejski Stadium in some capacity.

"I don't know about Arsenal, we haven't discussed it and wouldn't," said Dolan.

"Anton (Zingarevich, the Reading owner) has been fantastic with me and let me get on with it.

"I talked to him the first couple of days and he popped me a text before (the United match).

"They are thinking and talking and they will be pleased with the way things have gone (in the build-up to the United game).

"It's been a really difficult week - for us to put in a performance like that considering the players' relationship to Brian is a credit to them and a credit to all the staff.

"I want to stay at Reading Football Club definitely as some sort of manager, academy or whatever."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
