Newcastle United midfielder Miguel Almiron has taken to Instagram, after news arrived earlier this week that he would be out of action until April.

The Paraguay international was forced off at half-time against Wolverhampton Wanderers at the weekend with a knee problem.

He was then followed into the treatment room by Allan Saint-Maximin, who will also be sidelined until next month.

The double blow is hugely concerning for the club, with Fulham only three points behind in the Premier League table.

Yesterday, £42,000-a-week star Almiron (Spotrac) posted on Instagram for the first time since the news of his injury was announced.

With a picture of him sat on what looks to be an exercise bike all smiles, he wrote: “Thinking of getting back as soon as I can to help my teammates at Newcastle United and the National squad.”

 

There were plenty of messages of support from fans, and there was also a word from Florian Lejeune, currently on loan at Deportivo Alaves, who wrote ‘Crack’, which is a slang term used in football to describe a very skilful player.

Almiron will be badly missed

Not only does Almiron make things happen for Newcastle, he also works extremely hard.

Few press quite as much as the 27-year-old, and that work rate is going to be a big miss over the next few weeks.

Newcastle are in a relegation scrap right now. The tireless Almiron would undoubtedly be up for the fight, and the Magpies definitely need a team of fighters right now.
