Academy manager Eamonn Dolan is in temporary charge of the first team but former Swindon boss Di Canio, who left Swindon last month, remains the bookmakers’ favourite to succeed McDermott, and Salako feels he could do be a decent appointment by Russian owner Anton Zingarevich. “This might be the perfect moment for Paolo Di Canio,” Salako told talkSPORT. “He has fallen out with the Swindon guys, he’s walked away, he’s in-between jobs and he might be the perfect answer.” Former Reading midfielder John Salako believes Paolo Di Canio would be a good choice to replace Brian McDermott as manager of Reading, whilst Roberto Di Matteo also remains in contention. He went on: “He could come in on an interim basis, they could say to him, ‘let’s see how it goes until the summer. Show us what you can do’. “He would go and fire up that dressing room, grab people by the neck, throw cups of tea around and not let people slack off.” Di Canio was present at Reading’s 2-1 home defeat at the hands of Aston Villa, which proved to be McDermott’s last game in charge, leading to strong suggestions that the ex-West Ham forward will be Zingarevich’s preferred choice. But there are also suggestions that former Chelsea manager Di Matteo could be in line to return to the Premier League. The 42-year-old led the Blues to Champions League success last season before being sacked in November and ambitious billionaire Zingarevich could see the ex-West Brom head coach as an ideal replacement. PSV Eindhoven coach Dick Advocaat, former West Ham and Charlton manager Alan Curbishley and Nigel Adkins, who was sacked as manager of Southampton in January, have also been touted as potential replacements. Meanwhile members of the Reading squad continue to thank McDermott, who was named Barclays Manager of the Month in January, for what he achieved at the club. Midfielder Jem Karacan Tweeted: “Played a big part in my career since I was 15. Been brilliant for the club taking us to Wembley and then winning the league last season. Wish him nothing but success for the future.” Press Association

Alex Meischby Garrett Wilson, Sumner Newscow â€”Â For most people working in sports is nothing more than a pipe dream. But for Alex Meisch it is a reality.Meisch, a 2007 Wellington High School graduate, is currently interning for the Minnesota Vikings as a member of their video staff.He said the majority of what he does is film practices and games for the players and coaches to watch. Even at times editing film for players specifically and sending it straight to a playerâ€™s iPad.Meisch started as journalism major at Butler County Community College in El Dorado. He began filming games and practices for the Butler County football team, even traveling with the team to both National Championship games in 2008 and 2009.After two years, Meisch knew he had found his calling.â€œI loved what I was doing and just didnâ€™t want to stop,â€ Meisch said.So Meisch knew he had to take the next step to big time college athletics. He asked around and eventually moved on to the University of Kansas.Before long he was traveling with the Kansas Jayhawks as a member of their film staff.â€œTraveling with KU was great because they have about eight people on the staff but only two or three actually travel,â€ Meisch said.After three and a half years at KU, Meisch again began to look to the next level. He networked and talked to people and eventually found his way to Minnesota.â€œWhen I got the nod I was told that over 350 others had applied,â€ Meisch said.Not bad for a kid from small town Wellington.Meisch talked about how different the jump from college to the NFL is.â€œThe Vikings have about three people on staff whereas there would be six to eight.â€ Miesch said. â€œPlus they treat you a lot better in the NFL.â€When asked about the future Meisch said he wants to stay in sports and hopefully the NFL.â€œI would like to get a job with Dallas or Denver so I could be close to home,â€ Meisch said.But after five and a half years Meisch said he is more than happy with where he is now.â€œI am very blessed to be here,â€ Meisch said.Meisch did leave on piece of advice for anyone wanting to get into this field.â€œPractice, practice, then practice some more,â€ Meisch said.If you know of a Wellington High School graduate who is now doing significant things in the world, send us an e-mail at [email protected] Close Forgot password?
