Former owner Madjeski, 71, oversaw the takeover by Anton Zingarevich, with the Russian businessman taking a controlling 51% stake in the Royals.
Madjeski became chairman of Reading in 1990 and has taken the club from the brink of receivership to a second spell in the top flight and he feels Zingarevich is the right person to step in and help the club continue to grow.
