Danny Mills embarrasses himself again with more ignorant Miguel Almiron comments

Danny Mills insists he stands by his comments stating Miguel Almiron was not a ‘stellar signing’ at St James’ Park – despite praising his performances since his big money move from the MLS.

This comes after Mills said “I’ve never really heard of him, in all honesty. It’s not a signing that makes you go ‘Oh wow, this is inspiring.” when asked about Almiron’s arrival on Tyneside just a few months ago.

He showed incredible ignorance back then, but it doesn’t like he’s changed much.

Here’s what he’s had to say about the Paraguayan when speaking ‘exclusively’ to Football Insider, with him throwing several backhanded compliments his way – and refusing to accept that he’s been proved wrong:

“I think he’s been very, very good,”

“Was it a stellar signing? No, it wasn’t. Has he played very, very well? Yeah, he’s been great. All credit to Rafa Benitez and his scouting system. They’ve clearly looked outside the box and further afield.

“If anybody says that was a stellar signing at that time and they knew everything about him, probably need to get out a little bit more, I would say.”

“Has he been the only reason Newcastle have done well? No. That’s down to Rafa Benitez. Rafa knows what he is doing, he is the reason why Newcastle are where they are and they’re not in a relegation scrap.

“Has he been a good signing? Yes, he has. He’s still not that stellar signing. How many of the top six, seven, eight sides, would now go and try and buy him?

“I don’t think they would, not at this moment in time. Maybe if he has another good season and has a full year at it, they might do, so no, I made those statements at the time and I stick by them.


So, he says Almiron’s been brilliant since arriving, but refuses to accept that he’s a ‘wow’ signing, says no top 8 side would want him and suggests you ‘need to get out more’ if you knew he was this good before he made the big move from the MLS to England.

Top punditry work once again from Mills..
