Benitez: Almiron needs time to adapt
Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez has cautioned the Magpies faithful to give time to record signing Miguel Almiron due to the physicality of the Premier League.
Speaking the unveiling Almiron was formally unveiled to the media on Thursday afternoon and insisted his price-tag wasn’t the big issue but the nature of the premier league.
The Spaniard said: “He is fine, his training has been good. He is fit and is a player with good stamina and pace. He is mobile and quite dynamic.
“The question now is what will happen with the physicality of the Premier League – that is the main difference between the Premier League and the MLS.
“To come to another league is quite difficult. They need time to adapt.”
“Any player cannot think too much about the price, they have to think about what they can do on the pitch. I think he has the right mentality with that.”
