Basel hope Van Wolfswinkel can maintain red-hot streak

 

By Simon Peach

Ricky van Wolfswinkel will spearhead Basel's hopes of a Champions League upset at Manchester United, leaving many Norwich fans rubbing their eyes in disbelief.

Signed for a club-record £8.5m four years ago, the Dutch striker managed just two goals in 28 appearances in all competitions.

Van Wolfswinkel last summer made a permanent switch to Vitesse Arnhem. The return to Holland brought a change in fortunes and his fine form earned a summer move to Basel, where he has netted seven goals in as many games.

"Ricky has been performing well since he came," captain Marek Suchy said. "He is showing his qualities. He's our offensive number one and we are hoping he can do his job and score."

Head coach Raphael Wicky hopes Van Wolfswinkel can belatedly make an impact on English soil. He said: "I believe he can score and hope he will score in the Champions League for us."
