Almeria coach Hugo Sanchez was grateful to striker Alvaro Negredo for his brace in yesterday's 2-1 victory over Getafe.

Before the game, Sanchez conceded Almeria would sell the former Real Madrid Castilla star at the end of the season - and Negredo only added to his reputation with a double.

Almeria coach Sanchez said: "We should be happy for the many goals Negredo scores for us. We have to celebrate him while he is here because his play is always consistent."
