We had a few misgivings about that story earlier in the week that said that Jonas Gutierrez’ sister had tweeted that her brother was out for around two months with his knee injury, and it turns out it was all false.
Jonas Gutierrez will return soon
And news yesterday from Alan Pardew that Jonas has a decent chance of being fit for the Southampton game, which is the next league game after Swansea City tomorrow.
This is what we had said in the article we put out last Wednesday:
“But of course we have no idea if this is true or not – whether it’s his sister and what they say is true, and we should all probably wait until Newcastle release some news on the Argentine International.”
And it seems that Jonas could be back for the next Premier League game at Southampton, as Alan Pardew cleared up the facts on the Gutierrez knee injury:
“He feels good about the knee. This Saturday we should protect him but he has a decent chance for Southampton.”
That’s got to be good news for Newcastle, because the games through the end of the year are going to be crucial for us, and we need to pick up some wins, if we are to get anywhere close to 6th place in the league table this season.
