Noguera Settling Well

13 September 2012

Spaniard Acclimatising to Blackpool

Alberto Noguera has revealed that he’s acclimatising to life in Blackpool and hopes to make an impression at Bloomfield Road.

The former Atletico Madrid player, who has made one substitute appearance for The Seasiders so far, has bedded in well thanks to the other Spanish speaking players in the dressing room.

“It’s been good so far. It’s different because of the language and the weather and things but in general it has been good.

“It’s been a lot easier to settle in with Gerardo, Ludo, Tiago and Angel all speaking Spanish,” he admitted. “I’ve come here to help the team the best I can and I’m doing my best to try and get in the first team.

“I’m a playmaker that likes to have the ball but I just want to work hard and help the team.”

The continental style of football that the manager encourages at Blackpool suits the 22-year-old down to the ground, although he’s still getting to grips with the differences in England.  

“The football is a lot quicker in England because both teams take turns attacking. It’s also a lot more physical, whereas in Spain it’s a lot more relaxed and more about the passing.”

Noguera has been working on that football education in recent weeks, playing for the Development Squad in a number of behind-closed-doors fixtures. The Spaniard got another 90 minutes under his belt in a training ground match against Wigan Athletic yesterday afternoon.
