Santa Cruz Is Ready For Debut


Mark Hughes says Roque is finally ready to roll.

The Manchester City boss ended a year-long pursuit when he signed his ex-Blackburn striker Roque Santa Cruz, 28, for £17million in the summer.

But tendinitis problems mean Santa Cruz has not kicked a ball in anger for City since then – yet he is set to make his debut against West Ham tonight.

Hughes said: “We had a game behind closed doors against Wrexham and he was in good fettle.

“He did great for me at Blackburn and if he can replicate even half of that he will be good value.”
