Mauro Boselli backed to be a Wigan hit


Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez has called for Mauro Boselli to be given time following the striker's lack of Premier League goals.

The 25-year-old Argentinian arrived at the DW Stadium in the summer with a big reputation following an impressive goalscoring record in the Primera Division for Estudiantes.

Boselli has drawn a blank in five appearances for the Latics so far and missed a golden opportunity to break his duck in last weekend's 1-1 draw with Sunderland.

But despite coming in for criticism, Martinez is confident the South American frontman will prove to be a worthwhile signing.

"He will come good and he has been good in many aspects and many areas," he said.

"Mauro, like any other player, needs a bit of a settling-in period because the Premier League is completely different to any other league in world football.

"But if you look at the adjustments as a new player you need to make to get to being yourself in the Premier League, it takes a little bit of time.

"Mauro is a proven goal-scorer with a fantastic talent and we will get to enjoy his football at Wigan Athletic very, very soon."
