Bruce Speaks About the New Guys

Bruce Speaks About the New Guys


Wigan Athletic boss Steve Bruce has spoken about the clubs transfer dealings this past month and he says that although some of the old guard have gone he is mightily excited by the new guys coming in, Bruce told Wigan World:

'It's been one of the most important months in the club's history, we've said goodbye to a few familiar faces, but we've welcomed in the new generation of players who are going to take this club forwards in the future."

On the new guys Bruce spoke about each one and says he cant wait to get working with them, here is what he said about the players coming in:

Charles N`Zogbia

'This one is a really exciting signing for me. The boy is 22 but he's played well over 100 games in the Premier League. He's got that X Factor that can light up a crowd at any moment.'

Mido

'He had a dream debut against Liverpool. He's got the lot as a player. Strong, quick, good in the air - it's my job to get the best out of him.'

Hugo Rodallega

'He's an explosive talent who could set the Premier League alight in the next few months. We want him to settle in quickly.'

Ben Watson

'He's a midfielder who likes to get forward and score. I'm convinced he has what it takes to be a hit for us in the Premier League.'


Lets hope that they can all gel, we`ve got a nice break now until the Boro game to get them working and bonding together.
