Middlesbrough manager Aitor Karanka says he was impressed by the glimpses of promise Rudy Gestede showed in his debut at Watford last Saturday.
After making his Premier League debut against Watford, introduced as a substitute with half an hour to play on Saturday, Karanka says Gestede will have a big role to play in Middlesbrough's campaign moving forward. Karanka said: "I said when we brought him here that he brings us something different...With him on the pitch, we have the kind of striker who you need sometimes to hold the ball, to create an impact on the pitch, score and defend from set pieces." Karanka added that Gestede will 'for sure' start games in the future, making the Beninese a forward to watch in fantasy over the new few weeks. Middlesbrough will close out the month of January with Premier League matches against West Ham (GW22) and West Brom (GW23), split by their fourth round FA Cup tie with Accrington Stanley on January 28th.
