Robson rates Inamoto as 'gifted'

WEST BROMWICH, England (Kyodo) New West Bromwich Albion manager Bryan Robson has called Junichi Inamoto "a naturally gifted player," and said Tuesday the Japan international midfielder will get every chance to prove his worth at the Black Country club.

The former England captain, who began his playing career at the Hawthorns, has signed a 12-month rolling contract following the departure of Gary Megson, the man who signed Inamoto from Gamba Osaka on transfer deadline day in August.

Inamoto has been making steady progress on his comeback from a hairline leg fracture sustained in June and got his sixth straight reserve team appearance under his belt in last week's 1-1 draw with Manchester United.
