Hahnemann wary of Euro qualification impact

Reading goalkeeper Marcus Hahnemann believes European qualification may not be in the best interests of the club.

The Royals lie sixth in the Premiership table and are on course for a UEFA Cup place, just a year after promotion from the Championship.

However, Hahnemann is wary that the extra burden of European football may have a negative effect.

He said: 'I don't know if we want to get into the UEFA Cup.

'The main reason for our success is that we are a close-knit team and the manager has pretty much kept faith with the players that got us up. To play in Europe you need a massive squad and we would have to bring in six or seven new players which could upset the balance of the team.

'The second season is tougher than the first. Wigan are finding that this season and it happened to Ipswich a few years ago. Obviously we want to finish as high up the table as possible but it would not be a disaster if we didn't make Europe.'
