Pavel Pogrebnyak: Joined Reading in the summer on a free transfer
Reading striker Pavel Pogrebnyak has claimed that he has no regrets about leaving Fulham in the summer.
The Russia international played for the Cottagers in the second half of last season and was released by the Premier League club in July.
The 31-year-old joined Reading just days later on a four-year contract and now insists that the Royals' clash with Fulham on Saturday will not be special for him.
"I wouldn't say it will be a special game," Pogrebnyak told Sport-Express. "I didn't play for three years at Fulham, only about four months.
"But I follow the matches of my previous clubs. Sometimes I imagine myself in their [Fulham] squad.
"I have never made a secret of it that I liked playing under Martin Jol's management.
"But I don't regret anything as the best players left Fulham. It's still a question how they will handle the case.
"I hope fortune will favour against Fulham."
