Our new signing Jonas Gutierrez says he cannot wait to make his home debut against PSV Eindhoven at St Jamesâ€™ Park tomorrow night.
Jonas Gutierrez – cannot wait to play in front of Newcastle fans
We would expect Keegan to start Jonas tomorrow night against Dutch powerhouse PSV, and the Argentine international has already showed he has lots of skill to bring to the Newcastle team next season.
Jonas also works like a Trojan during the games, so he will no doubt be a big favorite very soon at Newcastle.
Gutierrez has also made a big impact already with his team-mates as well as the coaching staff on Tyneside, and it forced Kevin to say that it’s as if the lad has already been at the club five years, he seems so much at home.
Jonas is a popular player, and he got a great reception and hordes of well-wishers while in Mallorca, his old club.
Jonas talked to the Evening Chronicle today about his excitement at potentially appearing before the fans tomorrow night:
â€œI cannot say how much I am looking forward to playing at St Jamesâ€™ Park for the first time.”
â€œWe have some good games coming up against PSV Eindhoven and Valencia.”
â€œThey are both technical teams and it will be good for me to get familiar with the home stadium.â€
Gutierrez was so popular in Mallorca with the Spanish media at the ONO Stadium, that cameras were flashing all over the place when he appeared wearing his new famous Newcastle United colors.
Speaking about his trip back to his former club he said:
â€œIt was good to go back to Majorca and see some of my friends.”“I wanted to go there and help Newcastle win something at my old club.â€
â€œI wanted to play as soon as I got here.” â€œI had to wait, but that moment came on Friday night and it was a good experience.â€
â€œThe aim for us is to do much better than the last season. I know that already. â€œWeâ€™ll look at it match to match. But I look forward to next season a lot.â€
This boy seems a born winner, and we’ll be able to take a good look at him tomorrow night at St. James’ Park – and we hope his Argentine team-mate Fabricio Coloccini has signed for the club by then.
Maybe Fabricio will be introduced to the crowd, much like Habib Beye was last year, and the Senegal International went on to become Newcastle’s player of the season.
Maybe that will be a good omen, but we need to sign Coloccini first!
