Antonio Luna: Has already tasted some action in a pre-season friendly

The 22-year-old, who came through the Sevilla youth ranks, moved to the Birmingham club in June on a three-year deal and is one of six summer signings by manager Paul Lambert.

With a new campaign less than three weeks away, Luna, who made 11 La Liga appearances during a loan spell at Mallorca last season, told the club's website: "Football here in England is very quick, very rapid. It's a complicated league.

"For my own view, regarding my skills, it's great that this league is fast. I still need to adapt to things, of course, and feel I am all the time, but I believe it's good for me as I feel I have the characteristics to play here.

"I think I have good athletic abilities - I am quick as a player and that is important in a division like the Premier League.

"It's one of the best leagues in the world and I can't wait for the season to begin. It is close now and I am really excited about that. I can't wait because it's a new experience for me."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
