Paul Lambert has praised the performance of newbie Antonio Luna following his starting competitive debut for the club against Arsenal.
Luna as we know put in a solid defensive performance, especially as he was the only debutant in the starting line up, and also showed great composure in attack when he effectively mooned the Arse with a cracking finish near the end of the game.
Speaking to the Official Site, Lambert was full of praise for the lad although he did admit some curiosity about his nickname.
'I thought Antonio did great. He was up against a really top player in Walcott, he nullified him a good bit. But to have that energy and still run at the end was great. Andi wasn't there so he went alone, he may as well stick it in! It was classic counter attacking football.'
As for the Tony Moon nickname, Lambert added that if he continues to perform like that, the fans can call him anything they want to!
Following on from his initial after match comments, Lambert also talked about not getting carried away following the Arsenal victory because it's obviously very early on in the season but it was 'a dream start'.
'You can't say it's set the tone for the season, that's too much, we've got miles to go. What it has done is it's given us a great start, that's basically all it's done though. We have a long way to go, but at this moment, I am over the moon.'
