Ryo Miyaichi is enjoying his time on loan at the Lancashire club, gaining Premier League experience

Arsenal loanee Ryo Miyachi has hailed his loan move to Bolton Wanderers as a great learning experience.

The Japanese starlet was playing on the right hand side for the first time in the Premier League and he set up the winner for the Trotters against QPR, lifting the Lancashire club out of the relegation zone at the R’s expense.

“It was my first time to play on the right in a Premier League game,” he said, “and it was a huge experience.

“I wasn’t able to go behind the defender but I discovered elements of my game which I can improve on so I’m looking forward to the next match now.

“If I’m on the left-hand side, I can run inside and take a shot as well. I find it more difficult to come inside from the right. I’m determined to try to work harder and widen the variety of my play.”

Ryo revealed he was taking advice from more seasoned pros such as former West Ham midfielder Nigel Reo-Coker.

“I wanted to do something on my own, but I often couldn’t,” he added.

“Nigel told me that all the QPR players are wary because of my pace, so what I need is to use my team-mates to my benefit. That was his advice.”

“I want to try to broaden my playing style and be able to play on both sides. However, it’s easier said than done and I always try to take the opponents on.

“But I know that I sometimes need to hold my desire to do so, and try to contribute to the team”.

Despite early successes, including a goal for Bolton in the FA Cup against Millwall, Ryo believes he is still learning.

“Getting used to Premier League football is the biggest change for me, especially, the experience playing against Chelsea and Manchester City.

“Those games gave me confidence but in the same time, I felt that I need to improve my game more and more.”
