Manchester City manager Sven-Goran Eriksson has backed his 23-year Mexican striker Nery Castillo to come good as the season progresses and is confident that although he has not made a good start to his Premiership sojourn, he is one striker who shall certainly improve with the passage of time.
Goal.com quotes the former England national coach as saying:
Nery is settling in well. He is a good young footballer, there are no doubts about that. People have to remember that he has come in halfway through a season having not played much at all for Shakhtar. It is not easy for him because English Premier League football is so different. He has less time on the ball than he is used to and you can see that sometimes. That is where he loses out but he has to taste the competition to get better and he will do I am sure.
Castillo is out of action for at least 5 weeks after dislocating his shoulder during midweek’s FA Cup third round reply vic tory over West Ham United. But something tells you that Castillo is going to prove himself a decent player at east in his one-year tenure for Man City.
