Alvaro Negredo is the name that is being spoken out of everyone’s lips in London, especially after the man hit a brace in Manchester City‘s 3-0 victory over West Ham United in Capitol One Cup action earlier today. He truly inspired the team’s attack as he once again showed no hesitation whatsoever in front of frame.
Negredo was a hit in Spain when he played for Sevilla before arriving at the Etihad at the beginning of this very season. However, at the age of 27, he is still growing as a player and under Javier Llorente, and he has truly blossomed as he now has a total of 23 goals in all club competitions.
This could seriously just be the beginning.
The man can play as a target player or even create chances for himself which makes him a truly total package. He can head the ball and shoot with a bullet-like left foot from distance or close range. In addition, he is tall, fast and nifty which sometimes can trick an opponent to thinking that he cannot do it all.
Spain will be looking to defend their World Cup title this summer in Brazil with their usual 4-3-3 formation. If they do stick with that, Negredo is definitely a favorite to start in the striker role up top with a winger on either side of him. If he has someone who can always feed him the ball, he will have no problem finishing in the same way that he does for City. He just has to be trusted to do so by head coach Vicente Del Bosque.
If Negredo keeps up this blistering form, trusting him will be the easiest of tasks for the coach. The player himself will know what to do when the ball comes his way whether it be near the frame or a bit further away. Hard work is something this man does on a gamely basis. Negredo will lead Spain to glory.
