MICKAEL Antoine-Curier joined the Brewers yesterday on a contract until the end of the season after being released by Hamilton Academical.
Manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink believes the 31-year-old will be a very important signing.
“He is somebody who has got a lot of experience; he is a strong boy, a big boy and will be a very important signing to us.”
Jacob Blyth has been out of action since pulling his thigh at the start of January away to Cheltenham Town in a 3-1 victory.
Blyth played in the role of a target so the Brewers have had to put a slant on recent games in order to carry on winning.
“He (Antoine-Curier) will give us something we have missed in the last couple of matches.” Hasselbaink told us.
The Brewers boss was delighted to secure a player that wanted to return to English football and a player that really wants to play for him and the club.
“He is somebody who really wants to come and play for us”
Mickael has played in seven different countries, playing for Nottingham Forest as a youngster. For those fans that aren’t aware of what Antoine-Curier has got about him, Hasselbaink told us
“He is somebody who scores goals and lives off scoring goals.
“His movement in the box is very good along with his link-up play so I am really looking forward to working with him.”
