Wigan Athletic are setting themselves up for another overhaul on the striker front with loanees the Egyptian pair of Zaki and Mido likely to be back with their parent clubs come the end of the season, Heskey (Aston Villa) has already left for pastures new so as Henri Camara (Stoke City) and Marlon King (Middlesbrough), so five of the six forwards used this season will have left the club come the end of June
One man certain to be around next season is Hugo Rodallega who is impressing manager Steve Bruce and the forthcoming arrival of Cristian 'Chucho` Benitez will add a Latin flavour and a new dimension to the Latics attack next season as the South American combo pair up for a Colombia/Ecuador front-line .
With another likely addition of Honduras international Hendry Thomas joining Spanish speakers Maynor Figueroa, Antonio Valencia, Hugo Rodallega and Chucho Benitez the club could be forgiven if they thought to change their name to Athletico Wigan.
Getting back to the forward line and neither Benitez nor Rodallega could be described as typical English style front-men, both are slight, quick and much better on the ground than in the air, so a change of playing style than that seen lately will also be required to help the new pairing gel.
Playing fast flowing football along the deck will be the way forward for the Latics next season add to that a Latin element and we could well be in with another memorable season down at the JJB.
