The 18 year old was signed in the summer from Universidad De Chile but has had to make do with appearances in United’s u21 side where he has scored twice.
But Henriquez is now looking for more chances to show what he can do at a higher level, hopefully starting against Bournemouth in the FA Cup this Saturday:
“This is a fantastic opportunity for me and I am really excited after the manager has given this chance for me to prove myself. Now I need to work to try and earn my place in the team.”
With the addition of Henriquez to his side, Wigan manager Roberto Martinez believes the striker can make the difference and thinks he can get the most out of the youngster in his spell at the DW Stadium:
“We’re really excited about Angelo because he is a very young man with a huge potential. He’s a goalscorer with clever movement inside the box and has had a very successful time with his former club Universidad.
“We hope to have a good partnership in terms of allowing Angelo to develop as a footballer and learn of the demands of the English game, because I feel he can bring us something different in the forward line.”
