It seemed just perfect when Jonas Gutierrez scored one of his best goals ever on Saturday at Molineaux, to celebrate his two year extension to his contract he signed last week.
Jonas Gutierrez – after missing decent chance on Saturday – before his goal
That will keep Jonas on Tyneside until 2015, and we are hoping the same will also soon be true for Newcastle’s stellar captain and Jonas’ Argentine pal, Fabricio Coloccini.
Jonas is now off to join the Argentine squad during the International break, when the Argentines will play games with Chile and Venezuela in the World Cup qualifiers, and he had this to say to the local Newcastle press today:
“It was a nice goal and I enjoyed it. But the most important thing was to go there and take away the three points.”
“It was an open game and we had space to exploit. We did a lot of running towards them. We tried to keep the ball.”
“In the second half we didn’t create as many chances, the most important thing in the second half was to defend as well as we did. We are happy about that.”
“I am very happy about the result, it was really important to come to Wolves, play away and take the three points.”
As well as scoring that dramatic goal, when he somehow got past about four Wolves defenders before putting his shot beautifully into the far corner of the net, Jonas worked his socks off, as usual, for the Newcastle cause.
It’s these types of players we just love having at Newcastle, but there again, there seems to be a lot of very good characters and very good players on Tyneside right now.
That bodes very well for the future of Newcastle United.
For the record, Jonas has now played 120 times for Newcastle with eight goals.
