Wigan Athletic and Honduras international defender Maynor Figueroa is delighting manager Steve Bruce with his progress at the Latics

Figueroa signed on loan last January but didn`t feature until the last game of the season against Manchester United at the JJB when he put in a tremendous display whilst marking Cristiano Ronaldo.

The young Honduran has re-joined Latics on loan for a further 6 months with a view to a permanent switch to the Latics from his current club Honduras side Deportivo Olimpia.

Bruce said on Figueroa:

“We have got him long term and we are delighted with him”

“The three South Americans are doing well, but we parked Figueroa for four months and I think that`s the secret. You don`t rush them, let them adapt”

“He is a very fine player”

“We are very pleased with Maynor, he had his debut against Manchester United, I am pleased with all of them”

Hopefully Figueroa will become a permanent Latics player sooner rather than later
