Mowbray hails Ledesma talent

Tony Mowbray believes Middlesbrough winger Emmanuel Ledesma's insatiable appetite for the game is the reason behind his recent fine form.

Tony Mowbray: Highlights just how eager Ledesma is to succeed

The 24-year-old Argentinian arrived on Teesside this summer and has been a mainstay in Mowbray's promotion-chasing side of late, netting three times, with the latest strike a wonderful curling free-kick in Tuesday's 3-0 victory over Huddersfield.

Mowbray revealed he was impressed with Ledesma during his stint at Walsall last season and praised the patience he demonstrated in waiting for a chance to break into Boro's starting XI.

"The kid's got talent," said Mowbray.

"We watched him last year and yet he spent most of the first dozen or so games sitting on the bench learning how to play for us because he loves the game so much. He runs around everywhere and just wants to play like a kid in the school year.

"Obviously at a higher level he's playing at now you need to be a team player, you need to play your position and yet nobody has ever questioned his talent and his quality."

ark clattenburg is one of those referees that tends to get stick from both sides cos he likes to let the game flow and is quite lenient, and people only remember the fouls against their own team that go unpunished whilst not noticing the ones they've gotten away with. To pick up 4 yellow cards with clattenburg in charge speaks volumes about your approach to the game mr pellegrini.

astly under-rated goal keeper. Barcelona could have gone out and bought a keeper at any point they liked, but they stuck with him for a reason.
