Robert Koren insists he is now looking forward after patching things up with manager Roberto Di Matteo.

Di Matteo was unhappy with the 29-year-old Slovenian after he refused to shake hands after being replaced against Scunthorpe.

Koren let his football do the talking against Reading at the weekend after finding the back of the net in their 2-2 FA Cup draw.

The former Lillestrom man was disappointed with the events against The Iron and admits things have now been patched up after meeting with Di Matteo.

Looking forward

"In the last game I was disappointed, but we need to look to the future," said Koren. "The club is bigger than me or the gaffer.

"I am always the guy in the dressing room to go to the gaffer's office and talk with him.

"He explained to me that he said 'selfish' in general about every player.

"People know I'm not selfish. If they come to the games they will see that I always try my best for the team."
