Reading are in no rush to appoint a new manager according to BBC Sport.

The Royals are currently looking for a new boss after parting ways with former manager Brian McDermott on Monday.

The club have been linked with a number of potential targets in recent days, including former Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo, ex-Swindon boss Paolo Di Canio and Brighton’s Gus Poyet.

But it appears Reading are keen to take their time and make sure they bring in the right person for the job.

Reading owner Anton Zingarevich is expected to meet with Director of Football Nicky Hammond on Wednesday to discuss the club’s options.

The club’s academy coach, Eamonn Dolan, will take charge for Reading’s Premier League tie against Manchester United this weekend.

Zingarevich has expressed his desire to have someone in place by the time Reading play Arsenal on the 30th March.

Meanwhile, club captain Jobi McAnuff has revealed that the players shoulder some of the responsibility for McDermott’s sacking.

‘As players we all feel responsible for the decision that has been made’, said McAnuff.

‘It’s our performances out there on the pitch that dictates results, in that respect we understand the results – particularly of late – haven’t been good enough and that’s something we are trying our hardest to address.’
