Ángelo Henríquez made his Wigan Athletic debut as a substitute in their FA cup clash against Bournemouth on the weekend.
Henríquez made a loan move from Manchester United to Wigan Athletic for the rest of the season to make sure that he will be getting first-team football rather than playing every other week in the reserves.
Wigan manager Roberto Martinez has tipped the rising star to become a crowd pleaser at the DW Stadium.
“There is such a freshness about his play.
“Angelo’s movement was outstanding and his knack of getting a couple of yards in the box gave him a very good chance, which nearly brought him his first Wigan goal.
“I have a feeling he is going to be a real crowd favourite.”
“Angelo tries to be very clever. Because he is not the most physical, he avoids 50-50 contact with defenders but his running into space is really sharp and incisive.
“We do need to get to know him a little bit better. Sometimes he made some great moves and we couldn’t see him.
“But he will give us a completely different dimension.
“His attitude is incredible. He is a young man with great standards who is desperate to be successful in the Premier League.”
Ángelo Henríquez has been loaned to Wigan especially because Arouna Kone is set to go away on international duty for the Ivory Coast.
