Sky reporter shares brilliant Miguel Almiron stat from St James’ Park debut – This sums him up..

It has emerged that Miguel Almiron made 42 sprints in our 2-0 win over Huddersfield last weekend – a stat that’s hugely impressive given the most hard-working wingers do well to attempt 30 in a game.

Considering this was his first competitive game in months, this stat really does show just what bundle of energy this lad is – not forgetting the quality he showed when on the ball last weekend, with it being a game where he could’ve bagged a few goals and a couple of assists on another day.

Here’s what north-east reporter Keith Downie has had to say about the Paraguayan, revealing the stat that makes his home debut all the more impressive:

He really does seem relentless, something that makes him useful even on his off days. This was apparent in our win over Burnley on Tuesday, with his struggling to make the same impact he did on Saturday, yet still making a countless number of runs – whether it be to get in behind, pull out wide to create space for others or simply to close down the opposition and force an error.

The term ‘headless chicken’ has been used about fast wingers we’ve had in the past – Gabriel Obertan comes to mind – however Almiron looks to have real intelligence to his play; both on and off the ball.
