Jonas Gutierrez has been interviewed in the Daily Mirror, and he says it’s been his worst week ever, and the hammering by Sunderland last Sunday, which shocked and angered Newcastle fans, was even worse than relegation four years ago.
Jonas Gutierrez – worst week ever at Newcastle
The Argentine winger says he has stayed at home most of the week, and Alan Pardew has even changed things around this week, and the lads have been training at St. James’ Park, preparing for what is now a very important game at West Brom on Saturday.
This is what Jonas Gutierrez said:
“I have stayed at home all week. I haven’t been out because of the result. It’s the same with all the squad” “I think it’s the worst week since I’ve been at the club.”
“To lose like that at home is something that I feel will make all the team be sad. The city is sad – they did not enjoy.” “Of course, to be relegated is hard, but this has been a worse week.”
“I know we are talking about one game that I think it is more important for them and to lose the derbies is something very painful for the squad.” “I have stayed at home all week. I haven’t been out because of the result.”
“It’s the same with all the squad. What can you say to the fans because they ask you what happened? It’s about action not words.” “It’s done now. We can’t do anything about that Sunderland game so now we have to focus on the last five games that we have in this season.”
“We are in a situation that isn’t easy, but it’s not the worst.” “There are many teams fighting to take the points to make sure they are in a good position in the final league places.”
“We have a good opportunity now against West Brom to go away and get three points because it is something we are not doing so well this year to go away and to win we have struggled so we have to improve that.”
“We are not finished this season, it was the hardest week to lose the derby 3-0 at home. We can only think positive and that we have a really good squad.”
“I know that all the supporters are having a really hard week. It’s hurts because I come from Argentina and we know what derbies mean.”
Alan Pardew didn’t give his usual Thursday press conference today, so we expect that to be on Friday, and it will be interesting to hear what the Newcastle manager says about last Sunday and about moving forward.
Newcastle are not safe yet in the Premier League, but we are hoping Newcastle will pot in five good performance in their last five games of the season.
That’s the very least the players can do after the complete humiliation last Sunday.
