Lee Clark tells Miguel Almiron to embrace & enjoy it


"The feeling around the city and the club is one of excitement after Miguel Almiron’s arrival. He is a player the manager had wanted for a long, long time and he’s a player they had been missing in the forward areas. The footage that I’ve seen of him and the reports that I’ve heard, in terms of what he can bring to the group, making and scoring goals, have been fantastic and I think the supporters are quite excited and rightly so.

"That’s balanced also with a bit of understanding that it is his first time in Europe, never mind just the Premier League. I’m looking forward to seeing him in action. The signing of Antonio Barreca was smart given when Paul Dummett was injured there wasn’t another left-back in the club. So there’s a little bit of optimism after deadline day, especially after the win over Manchester City and the performance against Tottenham - where they didn’t look out of place, there’s wasn’t a lot between the two teams at all.

"If there is any advice I can give to Almiron is that all the supporters expect of you, no matter how you’re playing in terms of your personal performance, is that you just give your very, very best every game. They’ll accept sometimes when you’re not at your scintillating best. And just go and embrace it, enjoy it. There are people inside the organisation that have paid a lot of money for you, so go and embrace that pressure."
