Newcastle’s Gutierrez Forgets To Pack Clothes For South Africa

Newcastle’s Jonas Gutierrez is making news today because he forgot to pack his clothes, before leaving for the World Cup in South Africa.

Jonas Gutierrez – forgot to pack ordinary clothes

It seems that Jonas must have football on the brain these days, because when he arrived in South Africa, and opened his suitcase he found out he hadn’t packed any ordinary clothes – just presumably his football clothes from Argentina.

Newcastle’s Argentina winger  said:

“I only took my Argentina gear. I thought I was not going to need more than that.”

“My room-mate Martin Demichelis had to lend me some of his own clothes.”

Didn’t Jonas realize he would be going out at nights for meals and the like, and be travelling with the squad for their games – and surely they have club suits that they will be wearing for the more  formal occasions.

Anyway,  it turns out that a quick trip to Pretoria’s Menlyn Shopping Mall did the trick for the Newcastle star and Jonas added:

“I bought trousers and a shirt.”

Good for him, now he can at least look respectable – and hope Argentina get off to a winning start against Nigeria on Saturday – that’s the main thing.

Comments welcome.

    He was expecting to have to be professional like the England players – always in suits or training gear. He got to SA and realised, Maradona is manager.

    Priceless Jonas.

    A bit like the young mother who got home and realised she’d left the bairn on the bus!

    The Prince of Persia has a certain Jonasesque look to him, and he’s also forgotten his shirt….

    …but Jonas is better at kick boxing & martial arts, as Ed’s pic proves (no CGI either).
