£5m Wolves star says he’s been in close discussions with 29-year-old Newcastle star…

Newcastle United forward Miguel Almiron should be seen as an example for young players to follow.

Largely written off in the Premier League after failing to convince in front of goal, Almiron is now one of Newcastle’s key players.

The 29-year-old has seen his career transformed by Eddie Howe. Having gone so long not looking confident in front of goal, he’s now capable of putting the likes of Paris Saint-Germain to the sword in the Champions League.

Indeed, he’s also in the argument to be considered the best Paraguayan player in Premier League history. Roque Santa Cruz might argue that point but he struggled when making a step up to Manchester City, while Almiron has risen to the challenge at Newcastle.

So then, it’s interesting to see how he interacts with some of his compatriots within the Premier League.

Miguel Almiron: £5m Wolves player shares talks with Newcastle star

Over the course of the summer, Wolves paid a reported £5m to bring 18-year-old winger Enso Gonzalez to the club from Paraguayan side Libertad.

Almiron spoke in glowing terms of that move and, now, the Wolves player has shared some of the advice the Newcastle star has imparted upon him.

“I was talking with him about the issue of me not being called up [to the national team] yet, and so on,” he told Versus.

“He told me that this is how it is, that he also went through it, that he suffered, but that from one day to the next, and at any moment, it can change, and that I have to be prepared to take advantage of that moment.”

Miguel Almiron: Newcastle star should be an example

For the reasons stated above, Almiron should be seen as an example.

It would have been easy to get lost at Newcastle in the change of ownership but the player has had the resilience to take so much criticism and scale new heights in his career.

For players like Gonzalez, that surely has to be an inspiration.

Newcastle’s star is something of a trailblazer for Paraguayans in the Premier League.
