Newcastle boss Bruce delighted for Almiron: ‘I nearly did a Jose’
Newcastle boss Steve Bruce was delighted to see £21million signing Miguel Almiron finally end his drought in as Toon snatched a Premier League victory over Crystal Palace.
The 25-year-old Paraguay international marked his 27th appearance for the Magpies with his first goal, claiming a 1-0 victory which was celebrated wildly at St James’ Park.
Bruce said: “I nearly did a Jose Mourinho. Even I got carried away.
“I’m delighted. I think everybody who has seen him play and watched him now over 12 months – I’ve only had the privilege to work with him for four, five, whatever it is, and I think we’re all delighted because he’s a good player, great pro, great lad, very, very popular.
“You want people like that to succeed and thankfully, he’s got it off his back which is good to see.
“My mates told me last January when he came in that he lit the place up, that he gave a sparkle to the place, and I can see why. Of course along the way, he needs to score a goal and thankfully today, he’s done it.”
