Argentine forward Jonas Gutierrez is looking forward to his league debut against Manchester United and Argentine team mate Carlos Tevez on Sunday.
Jonas Gutierrez –
We just have to hope that his registration comes through before Sunday, so he can play in that game.
Jonas told nufcTV today:
“I am friends with Carlos and we will talk this week before the game,”
“He’s a very good player and our defenders will have to pay him a lot of attention because he can score a goal at any moment.â€
“There are many good players in the Manchester United team but Carlos is playing very well and had a great season last time.”
Christiano Ronaldo will be missing on Sunday and Wayne Rooney is still doubtful, but we know the Red Devils have a squad which is just formidable.
But Gutierrez remains confident that Newcastle can get a result against the Premier League and European champions, and that would certainly give us the start we need to the season.
“We go to Man United with confidence because of our performance in the last two friendly games,”
“We played well against two top teams, we scored four goals and created a lot of chances.
“We must be confident going into the game.”
This lad has taken to Newcastle like a duck to water – and he already seems to be the spokesman for the team – but it’s always good to have real characters like Jonas at the club – he looks another great buy by Kevin.
And we hope he’s right about Sunday.
