Blackburn Rovers Manager Mark Hughes has again reiterated his stance on Maceo Rigters, with his belief that he WILL be a star, and that he WILL make an immediate impact.
Rigters became the latest gem in Hughes' crown when he arrived for an AMAZING £350,000 from NAC Breda (even more amazing when you look at what Liverpool have just paid for his Under-21 International team-mate Ryan Babel!!!) when Sparky decided to definitely make his move after he finished top scorer as the Dutch won the European Under-21 Championship this summer, Sparky told the Lancashire Telegraph:
"We were made aware of him and we knew his name beforehand.
"He'd been flagged up to us prior to the championships and we obviously then took in the games and liked what we saw, and we are delighted we were able to get him."
And since being able to view him in training day in day out, and handing him his Rovers debut against Wrexham on Tuesday Evening Sparky is even more convinced by his ability, and the fact that he WILL make an impact on the Premiership (and sooner rather than later!!!)
A delighted Sparky added:
"Maceo is a good player - I think everyone saw that in the Under 21 Championships.
"He's got great ability, and he can score goals.
"We didn't really release him as much in the second half against Wrexham as much as I wanted to, but there were glimpses of his ability, and once we get to know how to release him in the right areas, and he gets to know how we play, then he's going to be a big player for us."
