Rodallega: Talks can wait

Speculation regarding the striker’s future has been building for

some time, with various clubs reportedly keen to entice him away

from the DW Stadium. The likes of Juventus, Sevilla and Atletico

Madrid are all said to be weighing up a January raid for the

Colombian frontman. Rodallega is aware of the rumours, but claims

to be fully focused on his commitments to Wigan. The Latics are yet

to offer him fresh terms, in an effort to fend off the mounting

interest, but Rodallega claims he would rather wait until he is

back to best before discussions are opened. “At the moment I can

think only about Wigan,” he said in The Sun. “I know the club wants

me to stay but there is still plenty of time for us to talk. “There

are many rumours about my future but I am focused on saving Wigan.

The Premier League is the best in the world. I came here to

triumph, not fail.” Rodallega is yet to open his goal account for

the 2011/12 campaign and admits that ending his scoring drought is

a priority at present. “Each day I dream about my first goal this

season and intend to celebrate it at Sunderland (on Saturday),” he

said. “I have never lived through a bad run like this and it’s

normal that I should be worried. “What’s happened to me is

incredible and I’m very unhappy at my lack of goals. “I’m not doing

anything different – just suffering a very bad run. I am a striker

and I’ve not forgotten how to score. “I certainly feel for the fans

who have supported me so well since my arrival.”
