Newcastle received a lot of stick in the summer for the way they had treated players like Hatem Ben Arfa and Jonas Gutierrez, but when the Argentine International revealed he had been fighting testicular cancer on September 16th, just before the game at home to Hull City, it put a new light on why the club had been quiet.

Ben Arfa had already been sent out on loan to Hull City for the season, on the very last day of the transfer window, so he has played his last game for the club.
But Newcastle had kept quiet about Jonas’ condition to respect his privacy, and there was an outpouring of support for the likable Argentine International, who is in the final year of his contract at the club.
And there was really good news last night that Jonas has beaten the cancer, which is now in remission.
So we wonder what happens with Jonas’ football career now, and will Newcastle now bring the Argentine back on Tyneside, where he can start training with the rest of the squad?
Heres the impact Jonas had on team spirit at Newcastle as he ¨sings” on the team boss, while sitting next to our much more subdued captain, Fabricio Coloccini.
Bring Jonas back to Tyneside, so at least the Newcastle fans have the chance to acknowledge the man, for his tremendous courage and bravery in beating cancer.
