Newcastle United: Steve Bruce’s praise of Miguel Almiron earns respect from fans

After getting off to a slow start to life on Tyneside, Miguel Almiron’s hardworking performances as of late have warranted plenty of praise from the manager, with Newcastle supporters concurring. 

Almiron, who has so far registered zero goals and zero assists since making a transfer record-breaking move to Newcastle from the MLS back in January, came under plenty of fire for his lack of influence at the end of last season – attracting criticism from the media as well as the fans.

However, over one third of a way through this campaign, supporters are now starting to see the merit in Almiron’s signing – citing his plentiful work rate and desire as a key component to his likeability on Tyneside.

These sentiments have been echoed by manager Steve Bruce, who has proved to be a polarising figure since replacing Rafa Benitez in the summer, but supporters have banded together to agree with the ex-Sunderland boss following his latest comments on the playmaker.

Speaking to Sky Sports via North East correspondent Keith Downie, the Magpies boss stated: “I’ve never seen anyone in 20 years cover the distance or play with the intensity that he does. His running stats are incredible – as big as I’ve seen for any player. He’s multi-talented, I’m confident it’ll happen for him.”

As a result, fans have concurred with the statement on Twitter, flocking to praise both men.
