Manager bids to polish gem

Glenn Belezika has the raw ingredients to become a top professional footballer according to Lee Johnson.

Latics’ new manager has been impressed with the 18-year-old (pictured) who has started the recent npower League One matches against Yeovil and Crawley.

Johnson said: "Glenn has done very well and, as many know, he has not had a lot of coaching in the game as he came late into football.

"What he has are the raw attributes – he is quick, strong and aggressive and is a very good one-on-one defender, probably the best we have at the club.

"He needs to learn positioning, when and how to pass the ball properly.

"What we have is a rough diamond and, if we can spend a bit of time on him, then he can be polished."
