Owen Coyle has lauded the impact of on-loan Arsenal winger Ryo Miyaichi, after the young winger helped Bolton to a 2-0 victory over Millwall in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

Miyaichi latched on to Sam Rickett's early free-kick before beating Millwall defender Alan Dunne and curling a delightful shot into the far corner of the net.

The Bolton manager brought the Japanese teenager to the Reebok last month and believes the player has the potential to become a standout performer for Arsenal in the next few years.

"I watched him a few times at Feyenoord. I knew that Arsenal had got an exciting young Japanese player into the club, when he went on-loan I looked at him extensively and he caught my eye straight away," Coyle said, as reported by talkSPORT.

"As much as I'm a manager, I'm a football fan as well. I want to see exciting players out there that entertain and when he gets the ball you actually think something exciting might happen because he's prepared to take a full-back on. He looks to get shots away and get crosses in.

"In football terms he's only a baby but I don't care what age they are, if they're good enough I'll play them and he's certainly shown he's up for the challenge of playing for Bolton Wanderers."

And although Thierry Henry may have returned to New York, Miyaichi revealed the Frenchman had a significant impact during his brief return to north London.

"I like the attacking style which penetrates [from the] left flank to get into box, like Henry," Miyaichi said, quoted in the Guardian. "When I was at Arsenal, I saw many times Henry score same way during training. [Robin] van Persie also did it, from the right flank. They showed very good example for me. That's why I could score today."

Miyaichi signed for Arsenal in January 2011, after he impressed during a trial spell at the Emirates. The 19-year-old spent last season on loan at Feyenoord, where he scored three goals in 12 appearances.
