New Signing Thrills Bruce

New Signing Thrills Bruce


Wigan Athletic boss Steve Bruce is still singing the praises of midfield man Ben Watson proving what a good find and what a good buy he has turned out to be.

Watson joined in the January transfer window and many people saw him as Wilson Palacios` replacement, but that would be unfair as they are two different types of player

When Watson first arrived at the Latics he was getting over an injury that had kept him out for seven weeks, so to say he was off the pace was a bit of an understatement, but he worked hard in training to the delight of his new boss Steve Bruce and Bruce is also delighted with the performances on the field of the former Palace man, Bruce says:

'Ben has been terrific considering he hadn't trained or played for seven weeks when he first arrived.

'He's caught up very quickly with his fitness which is credit to him, he's worked very hard and done everything we have asked of him.

'Ben has made a significant contribution, he scored when we won at Sunderland and then got the winner against Hull.

'He was so unlucky not to score with the free-kick last week, when he hit it I was convinced he had scored.

'The lad is still only 23 and we've got some terrific young players here, that's a route I've been aiming to go down.

'We've got some experienced players too - you need an experienced keeper and experience at the back.

'But a lot of the lads have a lot of football left in them. I've tried to make the squad as young and healthy as possible.

'These younger lads, Watson, Hugo Rodallega, Charles N'Zogbia, can only get better with time and that's exciting for us.'

Watson, at 23 is an excellent find for the Latics, looking forward to a really good season from him

It's a new creative midfielder that we need, someone who can play the killer ball. I have been very pleased with Watson & Catts but Lee must improve his bookings tally.
