Ryo Miyaichi: Feels he has improved as a player at Wigan despite limited appeara

The Japanese starlet joined the Latics on loan last summer but only made four Premier League appearances in a campaign blighted by injuries.

Now back at Arsenal after an ankle injury forced him to return to North London prematurely, the 20 year-old considered his stay at DW Stadium a worthwhile one and thanked the club for their support.

"Most of the time I was injured, so I couldn't play a lot of games and I couldn't show my quality," Ryo told the club's official website.

"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."

Wigan manager Roberto Martinez had previously stated he would welcome Ryo back next term, and although the attacker is grateful for the remarks, his goal is to break into the Arsene Wenger's team.

"The manager (Martinez) is a very good man and it was a very good experience for me," he added.

"It's great to hear that comment and I'm so appreciative.

"I'm always ready to play for Arsenal. It's my dream to play for Arsenal. First of all, I have to recover as soon as possible. Then I want to show my quality when I get fit. My ankle is getting better so I'm comfortable at the moment. My target is to be fit in pre-season."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
