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.
