Atlanta United President Darren Eales, who was born in Chelmsford, says that Newcastle have got an excellent payer in Miguel Almiron.
And he seems the perfect player Newcastle fans love to watch.
The first criterion is that he gives 100% in every game.
The second is that Rafa wants all his players doing the hard defensive work in a game when it’s necessary and Miguel is very willing to do that.
And the third is that this lad has real class and can run at speed with the ball at opposing defenses and can score and create goals.
This is some of what Atlanta President Darren Eals has said about his former player as published in the Chronicle today:
“But the big thing for him and why I think he is really suited for the Premier League is, yes he is a brilliantly exciting attacking player, particularly in transition – but he works really hard in defending.”
“For us as a club, to have our star player be the first person tackling back, and run 60 yards back to nick it out of touch, was great.”
“So, going to Newcastle – and this was the chat we had – he is going to fit in straight away because Newcastle fans want a player who is going to wear his heart on his sleeve.”
“And who is there doing the dirty stuff just as much as the attacking stuff.”
“In Miggy they get the best of both. They get a hard-working guy who’s going to be spending every bit of energy he’s got for the fans.”
“But he’s also got that touch of class where he’s going to take your breath away as he carries the ball.”
“I think he’s going to be really successful.”
More than two fans in five think we can the game at Wolves tonight.
