  • Sun, 14 Oct 2018 07:59:14 +0000: Rodrigo Moreno: ‘England was good to me ... I had no choice but to adapt’ - Bolton Wanderers | The Guardian

    These days Rodrigo Moreno leads the line for Valencia and Spain but a spell at Bolton was vital in getting him there

    Rio de Janeiro, Madrid, Lisbon, and ... Bolton. And straight to Burnley from there. The first professional game played by Rodrigo Moreno – son of a Brazilian footballer, raised at Flamengo, Celta Vigo and Real Madrid, signed by Benfica – was at Turf Moor on a wet, windy Tuesday when his new manager was escorted to the bench by eight security staff and escorted away again at half-time when he ran on to confront the referee. Owen Coyle had left Burnley for Bolton, 23 miles south. Vitriol laced his return.

    Rodrigo, then aged 19, had gone a little further to join the same club and found himself in the middle. “I remember them really going for Coyle,” he says. Some introduction, eh? Rodrigo joined Bolton on loan in 2010. A year on he had moved on again, returning to Benfica from where, three seasons and more than 50 goals later, he joined Valencia. He had a solitary year in the Premier League, started four games and scored one goal, but he had kicked something off. Burnley was his first match in England but his last was Manchester United at Old Trafford at the start of this month, and four weeks before that he scored the winner against England at Wembley. Now, as Spain meet Gareth Southgate’s side again, he is one of nine members of the selección who have played club football in England, even if Rodrigo’s case is different from most – no star signing, no Chelsea, United or Liverpool, not much impact either. Not on them, at least. On him – now that is a different story.

Historical Transfer News and Team Gossip got Bolton FC has been archived below:

Bolton Wanderers who are still reeling from being relegated last season have been showing much interest in many new players during the closed season as manager Owen Coyle looks to reinforce his squad for next season. The manager has a number of targets on his radar as he hopes to take Bolton straight back up to England`s top flight next year.

The first player who looks set to arrive at the trotters next season is the highly thought of Leeds United goalkeeper Andy Lonergan who looks all set to pen a new three year deal for Bolton. The goalkeeper has only last season signed a new three year deal at Leeds but with places not being available for him in the squad he looks all set to be playing his football in the Midlands next season in a deal thought to be worth around three million pounds.

Former Bristol City midfielder Kalifa Cisses is another player who looks set to join Owen Coyles side as they have taken him on a trial basis from the club from the south. Coyle has long been a huge admirer of the player who has found his chances very limited at Bristol and is looking for a new challenge and the deal looks all set to go through on a permanent basis as long as the player passes a medical.

Chelsea midfielder Oriol Romeu is another player being linked to the side from Bolton as the highly rated Spaniard looks set to leave Stamford Bridge after seeing his chances of first team action being dealt a huge blow by the arrival of Eden Hazard as well as the proposed signing of Brazilian midfielder Oscar.

Another player who has recently left Bolton is defender Mark Connolly who has just been acquired by Crawley Town on a two year contract. Connolly has found his chances with Bolton very limited and has had to branch out in his search for first team football with Coyle said to be quite disappointed with the players decision to leave.
