Arsenal youngster praises Wigan boss after loan spell
Arsenal news: Ryo Miyaichi claims he improved during his time at Wigan despite injury problems
Regarded as one of Wenger's most exciting prospects, this season was meant to be Ryo Miyaichi’s chance to prove his worth to the world.
However, due to spending a large majority of it on the side-lines, his development has stalled but the player still thinks he has learnt a lot during his time at Wigan.
Speaking to Arsenal Player the Japanese youngster said: "They have a good attitude and a good philosophy for football
"The manager [Roberto Martinez] is a very good man and it was a very good experience for me. Most of the time I was injured.
“I couldn't play a lot of games and I couldn't show my quality. It was disappointing for me but I'm so appreciative to the Wigan supporters, the Wigan manager and the Wigan players. It was a very good experience.
"Being there helped me to grow up. As a person, I'm growing up every day. When I was at Wigan the training was very good and the people are very kind so I got some good experience there. I feel I'm improving but I need to keep working hard."
Thanks to his string of injuries it is looking more and more likely that the Japanese forward will be looking to go out on loan again next season.
If Wigan remain in the Premier League, Martinez' side remains a good option, with the Spaniard's reputation for developing young talent.
He has also been linked with a loan move to Real Betis where Arsenal’s Costa Rican youngster Joel Campbell is currently on loan.
Wenger will be no doubt keen to keep the player in the Premier League after fighting hard to gain a work permit on the basis that Miyaichi was an exceptional talent.
Miyaichi impressed on loan to Feyenoord and Bolton Wanderers and will be sure to have plenty of suitors.
