Emnes excited by Alves

Published Add your comment

Middlesbrough new signing Marvin Emnes admits he cannot wait to line up alongside record signing Afonso Alves as he attempts to make his way in English football.

The 20-year-old Sparta Rotterdam striker saw at close hand how dangerous the Brazilian, Boro´s record signing at £12.7million, can be during his time in Holland with Heerenveen.

But after completing a £3.2million switch to the Riverside Stadium Emnes is desperate to learn from the older man and said: "He is a big player and I believe I can learn a lot from him. To be able to play next to a player like that can only improve me."
