‘Young players should be more like Moritz’

The Bolton News: ‘Young players should be more like Moritz’ ‘Young players should be more like Moritz’

ANDRE Moritz once again supplied the sting in the tail for Wanderers, drawing grand praise from Dougie Freedman.

In a season flecked by injuries, just six of the Brazilian’s 21 appearances for the Whites have been from the start.

Nevertheless, Moritz sits as the club’s second highest goalscorer with seven strikes, including an absolute gem to finish off the rout at Elland Road.

Finding a regular start for the man he brought from his old club Crystal Palace has not been easy for Wanderers boss Freedman. But he says the 27-year-old’s willingness to play his part in a squad should be an example to young players on the fringes of the first team.

“When I first came to the football club and didn’t pick someone, they thought it was personal and would be knocking on my door,” he said.

“I couldn’t quite believe the culture of the football club, and it needed to change.

“Andre understands his role and he’ll play, there’s no doubt he’ll play games before the end of the season.

“But he knows the best way to question a manager is to not only come on and score but to get hold of the ball.”

Who can argue with Dougie now then? Not me ,I backed him all season to come good but the impatient buffoons who sit behind me in the north stand lower surely now have to feel embarrassed about some of the nonsense they where shouting, booing at half time really did help didn't it !?
I just hope we can sign some of the loan stars and not have to let hem go
