The news of boss, Steve Coppell`s, new contract may be enough to make Steve Sidwell commit his future to the Royals, the Reading midfielder admitted.
Earlier in the week, Steve Coppell inked a new two year extension contract with the Royals and Sidwell is among the first of the players to admit he is ecstatic to hear the news.
‘It’s brilliant. He’s the one everyone was hoping to get signed on the dotted line,” Sidwell said.
‘It’s great news that he’s signed, he deserves it. I’m sure he’s happy, but you know what he’s like – he won’t show it.’
And commenting on how Coppell`s contract will reflect on his future with the Royals the plucky midfielder added:
‘It makes a difference, of course it does, it’s fantastic, and everything is key in terms of the situation with the club, where we finish in the league, what the chairman is doing and so on.”
But how great an affect do you think Coppell`s new deal will have on Sidders?
It is my personal opinion that Sidwell has already made his mind up about leaving and come the close of the 06/07 he will be waving farewell to Reading.
