Jonas Gutierrez seems to be enjoying his time on Tyneside, and he talked to nufcTV today in Newcastle.
Jonas Gutierrez – hope the Geordie fans like him
Jonas played very well on Saturday, like most of our players, and set up both Newcastle’s two late goals.
His corner after 78 minutes found Damien Duff, who smashed the ball into the goal with his head – what a tremendous goal that was, and Steven Taylor headed against a post from a Jonas cross, and of course James Milner made no mistake from 6 yards out.
It was a good 2-1 victory for the lads against Spanish cup winners Valencia, who were a very good looking side, but not as fit as the Newcastle side, and were about a week behind us in their training.
But they had some excellent players and played very good football, and it was overall just an excellent game to watch from two teams willing to attack.
The 25-year-old Argentine International told nufcTV today:
“It’s important that the supporters are with us so that when an away team comes to St.James’ Park they know that the fans are behind us,”
“I know already that we have very good fans and my first two games at home I have enjoyed very much.”
“I hope the fans like me and I was happy to help get the win against Valencia.”
“It did not matter who scored or set up the goal, we were all just very happy to get what was an important win,”
“That gives us confidence going to Man United next weekend.”
Jonas has fitted in very well at Newcastle and he is an industrious player, and can work his magic down either wing.
There’s little doubt he can do very well at Newcastle, and we just hope we get his registration through,in time for him to line up for us at Old Trafford next Sunday.
They don’t come any tougher than our first league game, away against the reigning European and Premier League Champions.
What’s the chances of a surprise Newcastle win?
Better than you may think!Â Â Â 😀
