David Ngog has a pedigree of scoring against the Barclays Premier League big hitters, and will be hoping for the perfect start to his Bolton career by replicating the feat when Manchester United visit the Reebok Stadium this weekend.

After famously scoring for Liverpool in a 2-0 victory over the Red Devils two seasons ago, Ngog also scored against Arsenal and Aston Villa last season in only a handful of Anfield appearances.

Reflecting on his deadline day move to the Trotters, the French U21 international spoke positively about the club's ambition, and said he was looking forward to playing under manager Owen Coyle.

"It's a great pleasure to be here and to be a Bolton player," the 22-year-old told the club's official website. "The club is ambitious and has been constantly improving over the last few years, and I'm happy to be a part of that.

"There is some good quality in the squad and I will try my best to add something extra to the team and bring my experiences with Liverpool to the club."


 

A lack of first-team opportunities on Merseyside is what caused the young forward to move on from Liverpool, in search of regular football. And having signed a three-year deal with Wanderers, Ngog is hoping he will be given a chance to repay the faith shown in him by Coyle.

"It is always exciting when you move to a new club and have that new challenge," he continued.

"Of course, I have to try to adapt quickly and I'm looking forward to working with the coach and meeting my new team-mates.

"The Gaffer makes the decisions on who plays and I respect that. I'm ambitious and want to be on the pitch every week and show what I'm capable of.

"I'm a striker and I want to score goals - I'm fit and ready to play whenever I'm asked to. But I'm not judging myself on goals because it's all about the team winning. I think this group can do something good this year.

"If I can score my first goal next weekend then that would be great, especially against a big side, but getting a result for the team is more important."
