Isaac Hayden certainly seems to be an instant fan of our new signing Miguel Almiron.
Isaac says the Paraguayan has been top drawer in training and thinks the 24-year-old will only get better as he gets more games in the Premier League.
Hayden has now trained with Almiron for almost two weeks so he will know all about Almiron’s skills, speed and drive to be successful at Newcastle.
Miguel Almiron – during his debut at Wolves
The former Arsenal player had this to say about our new signing today in the Chronicle:
“It’s difficult because we haven’t really got players who can make the difference by themselves,”
“We’re more a team who works hard and sticks to the game plan and help each other out, stick together, stuff like that.”
“We maybe need someone who is more of a dribbler with some extra pace, they can maybe make the difference.”
“Playing off Ronny [Rondon] too, it will make a massive difference and all the players that can get off him up front will cause damage.”
“He’s been top drawer in training,” “Especially for him, coming from a foreign country – and especially the MLS – it’s a completely different level.”
“For him to come on against Wolves, he was a bit of a live-wire and he showed what he could do.”
“There was a strong tackle put in on him and I turned to him and said: ‘Welcome to English football.'”
“He got up and was just smiling away. You can see in his eyes that he is really enjoying it, all this experience.”
“He will get better and better, and I think he’ll be a great asset to Newcastle.”
“I’d seen a few clips of him on Youtube so we had an inkling of what he was about, but credit to him.”
“He was sticking himself about against Wolves, he digs deep, tracks back and tackles.”
“If he keeps doing that, as well as bring stuff in attack, he’ll be great for this club.”
We expect Miguel to make his starting debut for Newcastle at home tomorrow afternoon against bottom club Huddersfield.
Hopefully, we can get all 3 points in that game and then we face Burnley on Wednesday night – again at St. James’ Park.
