Henriquez To Make Wigan Debut

Our new signing Angelo Henriquez, who has joined Wigan on loan for the remainder of the season, could make his début for them on Saturday as they face Bournemouth in the FA Cup.

“I’m hoping to get first-team appearances in the Premier League and coming to Wigan will be a very good way to do that, particularly with the style that the gaffer has got the team playing in,” Henriquez told Wigan’s official website. “Coming to the club is a very big opportunity for me and I am very grateful to Roberto Martinez because he has had the faith in what he has seen from me to bring me here. My job on the pitch is to score goals for the team and hopefully I can give the Wigan Athletic fans some good memories while I am here. I am available to play in the FA Cup against Bournemouth and I have been training hard to get my chance as soon as possible, I’m really excited to get going.”

    this lad is an absolute fenomena

    you’ll see

  4. Strik3rr says:

    Best of luck, hope this lad turns out to be something special

    This lad might not have even gotten near our bench, but when we have a proven Premier League scorer on the bench in detriment of the excellent Rooney and RvP partnership, that’s not really a good basis to judge him on. I watched a couple of Libertadores matches last year and he played very well with Universidad Católica. I must say love the fact that he went to Wigan, a club with limited resources but with a big club mentality, who prefer playing attacking football but are short on personnel and in which I’m sure Angelo will get the Premier League minutes he so desperately needs to continue with his development. Wouldn’t be surprised if di Santo started comming off from games more frequently now. I do hope he takes full advantage of the situation, though, especially with one specific player. In Kone he has a teammate (albeit a temporary one) who has played for PSV and Sevilla before Wigan and might be able to teach him a thing or two about settling into a European league. Let’s hope Angelo does a Cleverley and comes back fully reloaded and ready to fight for a place next season!

    Glad to see that he’s gone to Wigan.

    Roberto Martinez’ team play an open brand of footie so he’s likely to have a learning experience with WIgan, same as YoungTom.

    I see no reason for this kid to experience the frustrations of sitting on the bench that KikoTheKid had at QPR last year and Fabio seems to be experiencing this season. It was the same frustrating story with Giovanni Rossi at Newcastle a few years ago.

    If these kids are going to be sent out on loan then it’s in the interest of MUFC to make sure that they get playing time – better to play in the second tier than sit on the bench for relegation-fodder in the EPL.

    Nowt but respect for Martinez. I have a lot of time for him. Great loan move. All our loanees should go to Wigan.

  8. nicky says:

    we should give them tony v back for at least 3 weeks, get back in best shape for madrid’s visit! we need him in perfect condition together with our young man rafael…

  9. Ash says:

    King eric

    Rightly said. Wigan or even sunderland are the best option. I was shocked to see fabio go to QPR. I hate those bastards. Anyways fabio had a great game against chelsea this week. I hope he starts regiularly for them now.

    Wigan is the best place for our young players. The manager seems to rightly pick on the loanees

    @denton davey

    i think you mean giuseppe rossi

  16. Julian says:

    Good luck son. The very few glimpses he’s had, he’s looked promising. Wigan will be a good training ground to him…

  17. United Till I Die says:

    Perfect move for him.

  18. NYDUDE says:

    Martinez is doing it right at Wigan- good training ground for our lads…..

    Hernandez looks like the business so hopefully he gets the opportunity to stick it in the onion bag!!!!!

  19. Always Be Closing says:

    From the report on the BBC, it sounds like hitting the bar and making himself busy at Wigan is gonna do him some real good.
