Balogun Plays Down Influence At Wigan Athletic

Nigeria defender Leon Balogun has refused to take total credit for Wigan Athletic’s recent upturn in fortunes In the Sky Bet Championship, reports Completesports.com.

The centre-back linked up with Paul Cook’s men on a six-month loan deal from Premier League side Brighton& Hove Albion on transfer deadline day.

The Latics have witnessed an upturn in results following Balogun’s arrival and look good to escape the drop following a string of impressive results which saw them defeated promotion hopefuls, Leeds United and West Bromwich Albion on the road.

“If it has anything to do with me, then it’s a great compliment,” Balogun told Up News.

“But I think it is a team effort. I entered this group without seeing any indication of doubt or lack of faith. There was a great atmosphere. That starts with the coaching staff actually. I think Paul Cook can convey great confidence in the boys, and it was only a matter of time until we found some momentum. That confidence has grown steadily.

“All I could tell the players was to be patient. I wasn’t going to come here and act big just because I came from a Premier League team. I just tried to blend in and add some of my features into the hope to elevate the people. I’m a positive character and I hope that helps. We are in a great race right now and I hope we can move on.”
