Leon Balogun

The Nigeria international has earned the praise of the Latics boss following his performance against the Bluebirds

Wigan Athletic manager Paul Cook has hailed Leon Balogun after helping his side secure a 2-2 draw against Cardiff City in Saturday’s Championship game.

The Super Eagles centre-back made his full debut against the Bluebirds after joining the Latics on loan from Premier League club Brighton and Hove Albion in January.

Balogun featured for the duration of the game and delivered a convincing defensive performance to help Wigan avoid defeat.   

“Leon (Balogun) is excellent. He’s composed,” Cook told the club website.

“He sees things a lot more quickly and senses danger, his reading of the game is excellent.”

Balogun is hoping to reignite his career with the Championship side after his limited game time at Brighton.

The 31-year-old will look to make his third appearance for Wigan when they take on Millwall on February 22.
