West Ham coach Platt delighted for Mario Lopes after debut goal
Marcos Lopes is reputedly nicknamed 'Rony' after the Brazilian striker Ronaldinho - but City assistant manager Platt brushed off any comparisons.
Platt said: "I hope not. His nickname is Marcos and he has played five minutes in an FA Cup tie and scored a goal. He should be proud of that and equally he should be ready to train tomorrow and he will be, with the under-21 team to play in their game on Monday.
"He's a good lad, he's got a very good temperament as well and he won't let that go to his head.
"He's got a big smile on his face at the moment. He came away with us in pre-season, did very, very well and has great lines as a footballer with great technical ability.
"He wants to hurt the opposition, wants to get in the box, and has been scoring goals like that for the under-21 team. He's got a good future ahead of him, certainly."
