Blackpool manager Appleton praises Arsenal loanee Patino after debut

Blackpool manager Michael Appleton has hailed Charlie Patino after his debut against Stoke City over the weekend.

Arsenal loanee Patino came on as a 70th minute substitute as Blackpool went down 2-0 at bet365 Stadium.

Speaking after the game, Appleton said of Patino: "He takes yards off people sometimes with his ability to get away from people.

"I thought he was great. I thought he showed a calmness. He showed an old head on very, very young shoulders and I enjoyed watching him.

"I think the Blackpool fans over the coming season are going to enjoy watching him."
