Arsenal’s players are doing a great job all over the Premiership, as Bolton manager Owen Coyle is delighted about having the chance to use the young Gunner Ryo Miyaichi until the end of the season.
Coyle used the winger in a friendly game at the beginning of the week and is now expected to make him a week-in-week-out first team player after an impressive performance in the closed door match against Preston.
“Ryo has unbelievable ability, he has got pace to burn without wanting to warn opponents, he is lightning quick.” Coyle said. “He has also got great feet and is only going to get better.
“When he gets his chance he will show everybody what he can do. The proof will be in the pudding, but you will see what he has in his locker. He gets the ball and then something can happen.
“He is quite slight, so he has some developing to come. But his work-rate is similar to Chung Yong Lee. I also love his temperament, you always see him with a smile. I like his appetite for the game and his enthusiasm.”
“I would love to have signed him permanently but Arsenal would not let that happen.
“Ryo’s ambition is to go back to Arsenal and into their first team. He has enough to do that. He was at Feyenoord on loan and was terrific.
“When you are at an elite club you are not always going to get into the team, but may go on to have a good career. Everybody has their level. But I think Ryo can be an Arsenal player for years to come.”
By the time he’ll return to Arsenal Miyaichi will have to fight with Walcott, Gervinho and Oxlade-Chamberlain for the first team spot, especially as Chamberlain is really gaining pace in Wenger’s eyes and will probably become a regular first team player for the forseeable future.
Do you think Ryo will ever impose himself at Arsenal?
