Pardew believes that 18-year-old Bigirimana will continue to get âbetter and betterâ as the weeks go on following his promising Premier League debut against Aston Villa.
He told the Evening Chronicle: âIt was a tough game to come into.
âHe came in at a time when we werenât playing well.
âThat is difficult for a young player.
âI hummed and harred about sticking him on if I am honest. But he was terrific.â
