Google Translate at the ready, Samrit Bunditkitsada has told Asia TV's 'Manager' Sports Section that he is hoping to lead Reading to the top tier of English football within 3 years. For the full article follow this link...

Here is a quick summary

- Promotion within 3 years with £10 million yearly budget.

- Keeping Nigel Adkins in charge.

- Spending "a long time" abroad before heading back to Police United, his Thailand-based team, to which he has pledged to build a new 15,000-18,000 seater stadium.

- He is here "for the love of football ... [he has] not come for business or campaign."

These quotes are roughly translated, so if we have any fluent readers of Thai- be in touch!

Plenty of questions arise from the interview, but we may be a step closer today after GetReading discussed the deal as being in the Owners & Directors Test stage...

Stay Tuned at The Tilehurst End for the latest, as always.
