Report: Newcastle United coaches have decided to work on the very basics with £21m player in training
The approach certainly seemed to pay off on Saturday, with Almiron scoring a goal of the season contender in the first half.
And it was his darting run that allowed Bruno Guimaraes to scoop the ball over Fulham’s defence.
There was nothing coached about the finish though, as an instinctive strike from Almiron’s laces flew into the top corner.
Howe working on the basics with Almiron
He still remains the most expensive export from America’s top flight, and has been a regular for Newcastle ever since.
The Paraguayan international is not a prolific forward, and has never provided many goals or assists.
However, his work rate is highly valued, and he’s a very popular figure at Newcastle.
Almiron has already put in some excellent performances this season.
If Howe keeps working on the basics with Almiron in training, then he clearly sees further potential in the winger.
It’s going to be very difficult to drop him after his performance on Saturday as Newcastle finally returned to winning ways.
