Kapo To Be Given Another Chance at the Latics?

Kapo To Be Given Another Chance at the Latics?


Wigan Athletic boss Steve Bruce has come to the defence of his left sided attacking midfield player Olivier Kapo, who to put it mildly has been a bit of a disappointment since joining the Latics from Birmingham City last summer.

Kapo has only featured in 12 games this season and most of them have been bit parts, either coming on as a substitute or getting substituted himself, but it appears that Brucie still has faith in the want away France international, Bruce told the press:

'I think Olivier is as disappointed as everyone else about the way things have gone here.

'But I still remember the five goals he scored in 11 games at Birmingham for me, his 10 France caps, and him single-handedly beating Wigan while playing for Birmingham last season.

'It hasn't quite happened for him here but I haven't given up hope.

'I know a section of the crowd have turned against him a little bit because of the way he plays and the style he has.

'We haven't seen anything of him yet, but Kapo might still give us the spark in this second section of the season.

'Certainly he is right in the equation for Saturday. With Mido not available, he comes into my thinking.

'His best games for us have come away, particularly at Newcastle in November when he and Henri Camara were absolutely terrific.

'Most Wigan supporters haven't seen him play well.

'But you don't play where he has and get 10 caps for France if you don't have any ability.'


I would love to see Kapo start to give sparkling performances but something tells me his heart isn`t in the club or his head is somewhere else and headlines like 'My Wigan Hell` and 'I Need to Get Away` don`t help inspire confidence in his future at the Latics, a bit of a waste of £3 million if you ask me

good players don't become bad overnight but Wigan doesn't seem to be the right place for him. Bet he's on the bench on Saturday though
