‘Absolute hero’, ‘Actually love this man’ – These Reading fans react to surprising player update
Football League World
Andy Carroll recently joined Reading on a short-term deal until mid-January, and it has been said that he is being paid £1,000 a week.
The big striker would have been on huge money at Newcastle, West Ham and Liverpool at different points of his career, but he was out of contract in the summer and on the lookout for a new club for the current campaign.
A deal with the Royals was eventually agreed, with Carroll quickly making his mark for Veljko Paunovic’s side after scoring a wonderful goal in the win over Swansea this weekend.
And, according to The Athletic, the Berkshire outfit are paying the target man a modest sum, as they states he is on £1k a week due to restrictions from the EFL.
Can you remember the score from Reading’s last 15 opening day matches?
They add that Carroll has been happy to play for that amount as he just wants to enjoy his football again, which has obviously gone down well with the Reading fans.
Here we look at some of the reaction to the surprising update from Twitter…
