Celta Vigo coach Eduardo Berizzo has hailed in-form Iago Aspas after the striker netted his thirteenth goal of the season in their victory over Malaga.

The 29-year-old is in the form of his career and his goals have propelled the Galicians into the top half of La Liga and have also earned him a call-up to the Spanish national team.

"Iago is in a moment in which everything he tries is coming off, it’s fantastic,” explained Berizzo.

“He is a player in his own mould, you give him the ball in a good position and he makes the situation even better.

“He can also create his own chances with his movement and link-up play, he’s in extremely dangerous form at the moment.”

The Argentine coach also praised his midfield trio of Daniel Wass, Nemanja Radoja and Marcelo Diaz as ‘perfect’ which allowed them ‘to win the battle against our rival’.

“Their forward energy and momentum allowed us to go on the front-foot and give problems to our opponents,” he concluded.
