Coppell 'very disappointed' by Lita's arrest

Reading manager Steve Coppell may drop Leroy Lita after the England Under-21 striker was arrested yesterday on suspicion of grievous bodily harm.

Lita was questioned by police following an incident in the Haymarket area of Bristol city centre in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Coppell is dismayed that Lita was out in Bristol after the team had returned home late following their 1-0 defeat at Wigan on Saturday and may take action.

He said: 'Personally I am very disappointed. I have to ask what he was doing in Bristol.

'The players had five hours travelling back from Wigan and wouldn't have arrived in Reading until 11pm. He has then driven another hour and half to get to Bristol.

'I don't have all the details yet, but it could have an effect on my team selection. I will be speaking with Leroy.'

The club today issued a statement concerning the alleged incident

The statement read: 'Director of football Nick Hammond has confirmed that he and Leroy Lita travelled to Bristol on Wednesday morning for the player to speak to Avon and Somerset Police with regard to an alleged incident at the weekend.

'As this is an ongoing matter neither the club nor the player will make any further comment on the incident at this stage.'
