Some positive pictures have emerged from the Newcastle United training ground today, with Miguel Almiron spotted kicking a ball again just a month after suffering a season-ending hamstring injury.
The 25-year-old is not expected to return again this season, with him training alone and still all but certainly out of our final game at Fulham this Sunday, however it’s great to see him back.
He limped off in the second half of our 3-1 win over Southampton 4 weeks ago with a hamstring injury that ended his season, but his swift return means he now looks on track to compete in this summer’s Copa America with Paraguay:
It’s a real shame that his season was cut short, seeing him miss what was very nearly a memorable night against title-chasing Liverpool last weekend, however his work was always done when he limped off in the win over Southampton.
He may not have a whole host of goals or assists to show for it, but his impact since making a club record move from America in January has been sensational.
His pace, movement and enthusiasm at both ends transformed us, giving us a new lease of life in attack and inspiring us to several big wins as he battled for survival.
Unfortunately, it remains to be seen if both Perez and Rondon will be joining him for the 2019/20 campaign, but I for one am excited to see what he can produce in his first full season in the Premier League next year.
