Jonas Gutierrez has already left the Newcastle area and is now back in Argentina with his family, as he prepares for the upcoming World Cup with Argentina.
Jonas Gutierrez – preparing for World Cup
Jonas is today in Saenz Pena, and will not play in Newcastle’s last game of the season at QPR next Sunday afternoon.
Of course Gutierrez has been one of the stars at Newcastle during this Championship season, and Chris Hughton feels the player needs a little time off ahead of the emotional World Cup in South Africa.
Chris wants to ensure Jonas spends some time with his friends and family in Argentina, since Jonas could face a tough schedule in South Africa starting June 11th.
That seems fine with us, because Jonas has put his heart and soul into playing for Newcastle this very successful season.
He’s appeared 41 times this season for Newcastle, with 36 starts and 4 goals.
And we’ll be covering Argentina in a blog for the Daily Telegraph during the World Cup in South Africa, so we’ll be reporting on Jonas and of course a certain Lionel Messi too.
We also hope that Fabricio Coloccini will make the Argentine squad, but that’s looking rather doubtful at the moment.
An Argentina vs England final would be nice.
