He’s Coming Soon – We’re Waiting For Him

Jonas Gutierrez should be back on Tyneside soon, very soon, and he will try to get his football career on track, after successfully fighting testicular cancer over the last 18 months or so.

Fabricio Coloccini was over in Argentina a few weeks ago in Buenos Aries where Jonas had been training at one of the local clubs there – San Lorenzo

Colo has talked to the Shields Gazette today with an update on his Argentine compatriot:

“He’s coming soon,” “He’s finished his treatment, and we’re waiting for him.” “Everyone wants to see him playing again and training with us.”

“He always told me he was very happy because he heard the song on TV.” “During the first two or three games, he was crying. It was very good for him.”

This is the seventh season for Gutierrez at Newcastle and he went on loan last January to Norwich, where he played 4 games for them but couldn’t prevent them from being relegated.

Jonas has played 194 times for Newcastle with 11 goals,  and he has always been a very popular player with Newcastle fans., since joining us in August, 2008 from Spanish club Real Mallorca.

His contract at Newcastle runs out at the end of next June, so he will be trying to put himself in the shop window by getting back into Newcastle’s first team.

Jonas has been watching Newcastle’s game son TV, and he will have been buoyed by our recent results, and by our great result in beating Chelsea last time out.

Jonas  will get a terrific welcome back from the Newcastle fans.

    It will be good to have Jonas back in training, but I doubt he will play for us again. Simple fact is he is older and slower now. Hope he can find a club that will suit him.

    Looking forward to having him back in the match day squad, hopefully it’ll be a home game.
    I can’t see him in the starting XI anytime soon tho but still think he can do a job if we’re trying to hold out for a win for the last 20mins of a game

    My first post on this blog.

    I hope his presence around the squad,serves as a source of inspiration to the team.
    Just like the return of Raylor did against Man.city in the League cup.

    Late substitute in a Cup Final would be the best possible send off for his career at Newcastle.

    Don’t make your minds up on him yet, he’ll come back determined to prove his worth. He’s not got the pace for the wing anymore but could bulk up our options in the center.

    Take Jonas on as a club ambassador / scout for S.America as I bet he could unearth a few gems over there for us.
