Reading goalkeeper Marcus Hahnemann has hinted at unrest in the dressing room in the wake of the club's relegation.

The American told BBC Radio Berkshire not everyone was as upset by the drop to the Championship as he was.

He said: "I think some people might not be as devastated as I am - it might be because of personal situations with some guys leaving.

"But you have to play well to leave and I don't know if a lot of guys did themselves any favours."

However, Hahnemann voiced his support for manager Steve Coppell, who is yet to decide if he ill continue at the Madejski Stadium.

"We all want him to stay," he added. "We got into the Premier League and we had a great season in the Premier League with him, so of course we want him to stay.

"You don't need to look at the beginning of the year - you have to look at the last couple of months of the season when we just didn't perform well enough.

"We lost to Fulham at home, drew with Wigan and lost to Spurs, so yes, we beat Derby, but Fulham won four out of five and they deserve to stay up and we deserve to go down."
