Miguel Almiron now frustrated with Steve Bruce – Report

The Chronicle have revealed that Miguel Almiron has grown ‘frustrated’ by his lack of game-time under Steve Bruce this season – having started just once in the Premier League so far.

Stat-wise, the Paraguayan started the season very well, wracking up three assists and a goal in his four starts in all competitions, which makes his persistent exclusion from the side all the more baffling.

As fan pressure for Almiron to start grew, the opposite occurred and the player’s minutes dwindled , with him an unused substitute in the win over Burnley and offered just a two-minute cameo appearance against Manchester United on Saturday.

As a result, Lee Ryder reports that he’s unhappy with his series of snubs from Steve Bruce – leaving the NUFC boss with a big decision to make at Wolves weekend.

He certainly provides more of an attacking threat than Hendrick – and to an extent – Joelinton. If we also take into the account that he’s been playing well the odd time we’ve seen him, his disappearance is so confusing.

In the last few games, I’ve been left thinking that Almiron will have felt hard done by to miss out. But if he doesn’t start on Sunday he should feel seriously aggrieved. Especially when he has to watch the shoddy attacking output of those out on the pitch ahead of him.

Bruce has to start him on against Wolves – for the team performance, his confidence and the happiness of one of our star players – it’s absolutely imperative.

  1. He is a Rafa signing and like the others who have played for him, he is being forced out the door in favour of Ashley/Bruce signings. Almiron is too good to sit on the bench and will be gone in January.

  2. Well the last time we started him was against Spurs and he was awful. And where is he going to play seeing as Joeinton “HAS to be number 10 or Bruce is clueless?”

  4. Steve Bruce has no idea about technicality of football. If all the best players of the world play under Bruce in a season, he would still be struggling to save relegation towards the end of the season. The sooner Bruce leaves NUFC, the better.
