Harper set to ‘work like a Scotsman’
JACK HARPER is ready to prove he is anything but a “luxury player” by combining Spanish style with Scottish graft at Brighton and Hove Albion.
The highly rated 19-year-old this week gave up on his Real Madrid dream by penning a two-year deal with English Championship outfit.
Malaga-born Harper, who was coached by French icon Zinedine Zidane, was on the books at the Bernabeu from the age of 13 and trained alongside some of the most talented youngsters in world football.
At his unveiling at Brighton, Harper was adamant his Scottish heritage will ensure he is no passenger.
Harper said: “I’ve got experience of playing in a different country and I’m ready to bring it to England. I would say that I’m a natural goalscorer – and I’ve got the natural Spanish technique, but I work like a Scotsman.”
