This is great to hear from the skipper, with it sounding as though the Paraguayan has impressed his new teammates immediately both on and off the pitch.
Here’s what the skipper has had to say about Almiron during his chat from Spain for NUFC TV today:
“Since he has been in you can tell he is a nice lad. He is really sharp in training and is settling in really well.
“You can tell he is a good player. You can tell a good player straight away when you see one so hopefully he can make an impact.”
It’s fair to say he’s had a very positive start to life at Newcastle United – with Almiron impressing in his first press conference at St James’, looking a real live wire during his late cameo at Wolves, catching the eye in training and having the players in kinks during his initiation song last night!
Let’s hope that can continue during Saturday’s friendly with CSKA and into next week ahead of our crucial home game against Huddersfield.
