Following his arrival in Paraguay for the international break, Newcastle United star Miguel Almiron had a word with the local media.

The 29-year-old was quizzed about the national teammates who now play in the Premier League, and had something to say about Wolverhampton Wanderers’ new signing Enso Gonzalez.

Almiron told La Nacion that he’s happy Wolves signed the youngster, as that can only strengthen Paraguayan football.

“Enso is a very nice thing for Paraguayan football, that players are going to the Premier League, such a competitive league, where there are very good players. I think that’s good for all of us. That they have that opportunity abroad is important for Paraguayan football,” Miguel Almiron told La Nacion.

Besides praising Wolves’ signing, Almiron also talked about Newcastle’s start of season, claiming he’s confident with the squad the Magpies currently have.

“The truth is that I feel very good at Newcastle. We can say that we have many players who are at a high level. And I think that’s good for the national team and for Paraguayan football.”

Paraguay are now playing the two opening rounds of the South American World Cup Qualifiers. Those are against Peru and Venezuela, and definitely a great chance for them to start the competition well, as that’s a tough and balanced tournament to get to the top positions.

When back at Newcastle, Almiron will be facing Brentford at St. James’ Park on the 16th of September.

The winger is still to directly contribute to the Magpies’ goals this season, as he doesn’t have any goals or assists despite his four performances.
