Newcastle vs Atalanta: What has been said?

Miguel Almiron has had a tough time since his £21million transfer from Atlanta United to Newcastle in 2019, which was then a club record.

But there are signs that a more prosperous time in front of goal is coming after his brace against Benfica made it six in total in pre-season.

After the 3-2 defeat to Benfica, Eddie Howe said: “It was excellent from Miggy and he could have scored another one as well.

“So getting goals from him in good goalscoring positions was great. His finishing was excellent, his second goal in particular was a great finish.

“Miggy is such a good team player. He’s great in the dressing room and every aspect of his personality is very good.

“I am delighted to see him scoring goals and playing with confidence. I hope it is the start of a really good season for him.”
