Wigan Athletic new kid on the block, Rachid Bouaouzan, revealed that he spurned Bolton Wanderers, FC Utrecht and Feyenoord when signing for the Latics.

It`s the second time this summer that the JJB has been chosen over the Reebok with Antoine Sibierski opting for Chris Hutchings revolution over Sammy Lee`s evolution

Bouaouzan revealed that he also had a medical with Dutch club Feyenoord but wanted to sign for the Latics

With Wigan players Denny Landzaat and Mario Melchiot using the same agent as Bouaouzan they used a little bit of influence and met Bouaouzan at Manchester Airport

The 25 year old winger made his first start in a Latics shirt for the reserves in the nil-nil draw at Ewood Park against
Blackburn on Monday and he`s now hoping for a 1st team game against Fulham in the Premiership on Saturday week

Latics better club than Bolton?
