What has Miguel Almiron’s preparation been for Wolves?
Miguel Almiron has not played since December 8 – but has declared himself ‘ready’ to make his Newcastle United debut against Wolves tonight.
The 25-year-old only had his first training session at Benton on Wednesday, when he met Rafa Benitez and his new team-mates for the first time, but he had been keeping himself fit during the MLS off-season. Indeed, Atlanta only returned for pre-season training last month.
Whatever happens, more than 6,000 miles away, in Asuncion, Almiron’s proud family will be watching on television – hoping to see him make his debut.
