The Newcastle United Player of the Month, Jonas Gutierrez, yesterday thanked the Newcastle fans for their votes that saw the Argentine collect the Carling award for January.
Jonas Gutierrez – big success on Tyneside
The Argentine winger seems to be coming back into form, and it’s some sight to see the lad running at speed at the opposing defenses, and he’s looked a good player all season for the Magpies.
Add to that he seems to love life on Tyneside, and Jonas is already a big favorite at Newcastle.
The impressive performances of late saw the former Real Mallorca man get more than half of the votes for the monthly prize, as he came out on top beating Steven Taylor, Jose Enrique, Sebastien Bassong and Andy Carroll to the award.
Gutierrez spoke to nufcTV yesterday morning:
“It is always special when you win an award which is voted for by the fans,”
“I thank them for that and I hope to continue with my recent form because I feel like I’m back to my best now after the injury last year.”
“They have been magnificent with me since I came and of course I won the same award in August which was a very early boost for me.”
We look for Jonas to be on his best form in the run-in to the league, and if we can survive the Premier League this season, we really hope we can strengthen the side in the summer, so we don’t have to go through another relegation fight next term.
They are becoming rather tedious, to say the least.
