Alan Pardew says that Newcastle United will not rush Jonas Gutierrez back too quickly, as the Argentine International is all set to resume his football career – and he is still contracted to Newcastle through next June.
Jonas Gutierrez – ready to resume his football career
The great news earlier this week was that the Argentine midfielder was declared cancer free, after his successful fight against the disease, which included some very hard to take chemotherapy treatment.
This is what a delighted Alan Pardew had to say at his press conference today about Jonas:
“It’s massive news for the squad because he is a much-loved figure here, and to get the all-clear.¨ “We had a response from his surgeon to say that in about a month’s time, he can cope with professional training, so we are not rushing him in any shape or form.¨
¨Just letting Jonas have some time, because it’s such an illness that you do need a lot of recovery time for that.¨ “But he’s in great shape.” ¨Colo tells me he is in good form and we are looking forward to seeing him.”
Alan is right what he says because after using all your emotions and energy to fight cancer – it’s the player who has to decide what pace he comes back at – but it will be great to have the 31 year-old Argentine back at Newcastle soon.
Jonas has proved he’s quite a man by the way he has fought and won his battle against cancer – it takes a lot of energy and a lot of mental strength to accomplish that.
He’s been just fantastic.
