'Man of the moment': Spanish press laud Wolves striker Rafa Mir again

Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Rafa Mir has made headlines once again over in Spain, scoring his 15th goal of the season for loan club SD Huesca.

The 23-year-old hit a brace against Elche in a 3-1 win on Friday – a result that follows a 2-0 victory over Levante, with Mir scoring both in that game.

His form is picking up just at the right time for Huesca – Mir now has six in his last five games.

The Spanish outfit have now climbed out of the relegation zone and are a point clear.

The local press have lapped up Mir’s contributions, with Diario del Alto Aragon titling a piece ‘The man of the moment’.

They say that Mir has been ‘decisive’ in the past couple of games, and has played a fundamental role in Huesca’s climb to safety.

It’s also claimed that ‘practically half the league’ are now looking at Mir as a potential transfer option, so good he has been.

Especially since he’s playing in a team that has been struggling for most of the season.

Wolves simply have to take another look at Mir in pre-season.

Clearly he’s come a long way since his last appearance in old gold, and he could well save the club some money this summer.
