Will Leroy Lita find another Premier League club? After all, it appears his days at Reading are numbered after the striker spoke out about his lack of first-team action on the BBC website. The England Under-21 international has managed just one goal for the Royals this season, after being used sparingly by manager Steve Coppell.
“I’ve already missed half of the season and I don’t want that to continue,” said Lita. “If I’m not going to get the opportunity here then I have to leave.”
Lita added: “The gaffer doesn’t think I’m good enough but I believe I can play in this team.
“I just haven’t had the chance to show what I can do and I’ve not been given the opportunity.”
However, when given the opportunity last week at Tottenham, Lita passed it up.
“The gaffer said I didn’t want to play but that wasn’t accurate.
“I said to him if I’m going to move on I’d like to not be cup-tied, it wasn’t that I didn’t want to play.”
Yes it was Leroy. Do you think a Manchester United or a Chelsea are going to come in for you? After all, these are the sort of teams that go on a Cup run, not the clubs that you’re good enough to play for. By playing, the forward could at least have put himself in the shop window.
