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.

They need as many questionnaires filled out as possible – please see if you can help them here.
