The good news that Jonas Gutierrez has beaten cancer was very well received by fans around the world, but the Argentine International is not stopping there – and he is already in training and plans to return to Newcastle soon.
Jonas Gutierrez – when playing for Newcastle
Jonas made two appearances for Newcastle about a year ago, and the 31 year-old has only just finished his chemotherapy treatment, which has ultimately been successful, and Jonas is already back in training in Argentina.
The Argentine International plans to return to Tyneside next month to resume training, and that’s not too surprising since he is still contracted to Newcastle though the end of next June.
And it’s also a case of Jonas picking up his life and career, after being declared cancer free.
And the fact that he finished the Buenos Aries marathon last month, shows that he must be in more than decent shape.
This is what Jonas has said today:
“My aim is to play every single game and earn a starting place,” “That’s no different to any young player, but I feel good and am trying to get back into the swing of things.”
We put out a poll earlier today and asked fans if they wanted to see Jonas back at Newcastle, and 90% said yes.
It looks like Jonas’ amazing story and journey are not over yet.
After the way he beat cancer, there’s just no telling what he can now achieve on the football pitch – and I for one would not bet against him winning back his starting place – although it will be tough.
But that seems easy and straight forward – compared to what he’s just accomplished in beating cancer – and we expect Jonas to be an inspired man when he returns to Tyneside.
