An excellent interview in the Evening Chronicle today with Jonas Gutierrez, where he talks about both himself and Argentine compatriot Fabricio Coloccini wanting to stay at Newcastle.
Jonas Gutierrez – in action against you know who recently
Alan Pardew seems to be doing an excellent job on securing the best players to new extended contracts on Tyneside, and Jonas today has quickly said the two Argentines want to stay at the Tyneside club.
With Joey Barton the latest to be close to signing a new contract to stay on Tyneside for another five years, one would expect Jose Enrique to be the next in line to get both an extended and improved contract.
The Spaniard has been so good for Newcatsle over these last two seasons, that’s the least he deserves.
And after those deals are done and dusted, new improved contracts for both Andy Carroll and Cheick Tiote would seem very likely.
Jonas talked about the fact that he and his compatriot Fab Coloccini want to stay at the famous Newcastle club:
“We both want to stay.” “The club are focusing on what they want to do and that is to make a good team.” “Now we are having problems with injuries and this league is tough.”
“We have had control of the last two matches.” “The only mistakes we have made is that we have conceded in the last minute.”
“I think we need to learn to hold on to the ball and get the ball in the spaces away from goal.” “It has been tough, we played on December 26 and 28.”
“Every team has to do that, but in the first year I was here we were able to change some players around and rest.” “This time we had to play the same team for two games running.”
“It hasn’t been about skills, it has been about fatigue and condition.”
We have to hope that Jonas is coming into some of his best form of the season, and of course it’s always good to hear players saying they want to stay at the cub.
Something good must be happening at Newcastle these days – that’s for sure.
