Reading FC manager Ruben Selles addresses rumours over administration – Reading Today Online

Reading v Southampton

READING FC manager Ruben Selles addressed rumours over the future of the club and possible administration following their 5-0 win over Swindon Town.

Harvey Knibbs netted a hat-trick to help the Royals defeat their rivals in the EFL Trophy.

Speaking after the match, Selles was asked about the possibility of the club going into administration following rumours over the past couple of days.

He said: “I read the news this morning, I haven’t had any communication from the club so as far as I know there is no intention.

“But it can be there tomorrow and after tomorrow it can be different, but as far I know there is nothing about administration right now.”

The Royals have faced a whole host of financial issues under current owner Dai Yongge, including points deductions, late wage payments and missed HMRC payments.

While discussing with potential investors to try and fix cash flow problems, Dai Yongge has also reportedly been negotiating with potential buyers over the sale of the club.

However, Selles confirmed that he has had no recent contact with the owner.

He continued: “I don’t know. I don’t know how to answer that question. I don’t expect any communication, everything can happen and I don’t know exactly what is going on there but I need to be focused on the pitch otherwise I will expend a lot of energy.”
