Full Transcript Of Jonas’ Interview Today On nufcTV


Jonas Gutierrez has been interviewed on nufcTV today, for his first interview since coming back to Newcastle, after successfully fighting testicular cancer.

Jonas Gutierrez – Newcastle winger

Here is the full transcript we have made of Jonas  Gutierrez interview with nufcTV – for those who don’t have a subscription:

“I’m really happy to be back, it was a hard year for me but now, more importantly, I’ve been involved again with the team and training. I’m really enjoying all the days back in Newcastle.”

“It was like  (a year) last  October when I found out, and I had to do the chemotherapy in July of this year, and so it was one year ago – so it was hard but I always think to beat the cancer – to always I was looking forward – so yes – I am proud to be back and with the lads.”

“I have the news that I had cancer – the only thing I was thinking about was how to beat it, you know, to win the game, I always think to leave it in the hands of the doctors, and to do what they tell me to do – to come back as quickly and as soon as possible.”

“So I was always like that – I never got frustrated or asked why this happened to me – no –  life is life – it’s not easy for anybody,  but that’s the test that life put to me – I go forward and this was really the biggest deal.”

“No, It wasn’t difficult not to tell people, since I start with the chemotherapy, I started to lose my  hair and growing like  fat because of the medicines, , so after that, and then I preferred to tell people what was going on – everybody knew – and then I didn’t have to explain what was going on.”

“It was amazing to receive that kind of support from all the fans, I have to say thank you, because they gave me the power and the strength to go through the cancer, and it made me really really  happy to have those messages.”

“All the messages from Newcastle fans, Velez Sarsfield, Mallorca, National team – all the clubs I had been playing – and they gave me all the messages – people that I don’t know – all the players I had played against – so it was really amazing to have that support – I had really good relationships – so it was amazing to have that kind of support and it give me all the power.”

“I think when you do the right things in your life in different situations, that things come back  – no – I always have a good relationship with my teammates, the players I played against – all the players sent me messages – that was very important.”

“I spoke to Colo about that (applause in 18th minute of games) – I was at home – yes – it was amazing to receive that kind of support from the Newcastle fans and they were singing my song – so yes I’m really proud about all those type of messages, and the only thing I can say is thank you – thank you for the support they have given me – it was really important .and I am never going to  forget that.”

“Colo has been a really big help – he is like part of my family, we have spent a lot of time in Newcastle together – so he always knew about my situation, and he gave me a lot of support – it’s something very special that we have with Fabricio and our families – we are really close friends – and what I tell you before – he is part of my family.”

“I am feeling good and happy and enjoy every day in training and I am just looking forward, you never know what will happen in football, and it’s important for now to be back and try to get fit and to be ready if I have any chance, but the only thing that I can do is to do my best.”

“Yes of course it makes you stronger, and it makes you think that when you have a problem like a cancer or a health problem then other problems are really really small – so the most important thing is to win the game,  to win that battle that was really hard –  and now I try to do my best.”

“I don’t know what will happen in the future, but the only thing I can do now is to do my best.”

When you “beat” cancer the one thing that you are always made aware of, is that the cancer can always come back – basically at any time – so you live for the moment.

We wish Jonas Gutierrez the very best in the future, and we also hope he can come back and play for the Newcastle first team again.

That would be simply terrific.

    He’s just recovering from cancer and Pardew, is using him to curry favour, with the supporters.

    Been a reader of the blog for some 5 or 6 years now and although I’ve generally read other people’s comments, I’ve never taken the time to make an account and comment myself on our beloved Toon. Thought what better time to start than the night before the derby, eh?

    I’ve found it I nteresting to see how other fans want us to line up tomorrow, I think I’d have to agree with Big Pappa Cissé.

    Perhaps Saylor at CB and Dummet to LB, I do rate Haïdara, but I think we need as many local lads on the pitch as we can get.

    I’d like Cabella to make a second half cameo too, reckon he could really open them up once legs get tired, especially considering Sunderland don’t have the quickest of defences.

    He just gives his honest opinion after every match, like i said his best one is when he had a go at Bellamy, if you or anyone else haven’t seen it i suggest you do.

    I also agree with JamesToon regarding Saylor dealing better with Fletcher arially. Although, should Dummet start there, I have every confidence in him. I’m just worried that they’ll pepper Alnwick at every opportunity and it’s been well documented that we’re a second half team. If we don’t concede before half time, I think we’ll have them!

    True Geordie is a complete knob. A celebrity wannabe.

    I’d rather eat your poo three times a day than watch his cringy videos Welshie.

    By far the worst thing about the internet, tubes like him get given a platform to talk shite.

    If the internet didn’t exist he would be browsing the ladies underwear section in the littlewoods catalogue book all day everyday.

    Damm internet.

    I know you love Pardew, but pardew had no option to play the youngsters when he had injuries but as soon as Willo, Gouffran, Tiote etc were available again that was the end of that.

    do you really want talented youngsters docrinated in only having 34% possession per match

    From earlier thread

    Rotonda heights // Dec 20, 2014 at 2:49 PM

    it’s funny people say we can’t afford to have a good manager hence we’re stuck with pardew.

    Would there not be a case for throwing a lot of money at a top manager who can develop his own -players.

    If you look at it we’ve spent 24M on Anita, Riviere and Cabella who barely feature.

    I fear for armstrong, roberts, aarons, abeid under the current manager whose teams have 34% possession.

    107tequilamag // Dec 20, 2014 at 2:59 PM

    ‘@106 not that we can`t afford a better manager. We can. We won`t though because Mash has no interest in paying big money for players or managers.
    Odd you find Pardew as a reason to fear for the futures of those players as Pardew is the manager giving them their chance

    For me colo would be suited to play there as he keeps pulling out of postion closing down on the wings when its not need sitting in front he can pull across and cover when full back bombs on and cisse on bench super to kill the mackams off

    With Parsnip we’ll always have a 35-40% win percentage. It’s not good enough and never will be. But Ashley is a completely useless owner who won’t change anything unless he’s absolutely petrified he will lose his Prem money. That says it all with him. Hopeless pair.

    RH Stretching a point to say I love Pardew(not for the first time)I don`t have an irrational hatred of the man.Perhaps that is what is confusing you.
    I know you love a statiistic especially when it supports your laboured points but at the start of the season we had great possession stats but were not winning. Everyone at the time was saying good possession stats were pointless without results .
    A ;ot of the selections this season have dictated by injuries but the fact remains Pardew has persevered with Sammi Dummet Peresz when he had other options in Cabella Goofy Rivi etc.

    Rotonda,
    I was just about to post before I got distracted and then tequila came on and answered anyway. I find that he (tequila) is neither pro or anti Pardew/Ashley but if anything would rather they both weren’t here, having a balanced view that you don’t agree with doesn’t mean someone is the polar opposite to what you think, I don’t agree with some of his posts but understand that his views are more neutral as opposed to my very anti Ashley posts.

    Cabella looks a really talented and industrious player. Why not just play him and be done with it. He must know what’s required by now. In Peres, Sammi and Cabella we have three players with the potential to light up the league, which I’m afraid Rivi and Goofy do not. I could see the point before, when they were untested, but now they’re off and running surely they should be given their heads.

    tequila,
    Good evening, I hope so ! I’m glad you posted that stat about possession as I looked at the BBC match reports the other day and a lot of that very good run we had, our possesion was disgraceful, I knew that six game run wasn’t an average on the whole season though, it’s very easy to use misleading stats to back an argument.

    RH,
    As always you seem to harbour thought that Mashley is somehow doing the right thing and that the fact that 24M has been spent on players that aren’t used while Pardew is still in employment is somehow Pardews fault, you have been very and still are slightly, despite his refusal to sack the manager you hate, pro Ashley.

    pards cant play abeid or aarons if they are injured sometimes i think you are deliberately antagonistic i notice like pards supposedly old tactics appear when the squad is depleted you appear with your old views when we lose a couple of matches
    although your not the only one a few old names have suddenly come out of the woodwork theres nothing like predicatability on this blog is there

    JFA some wins come prettier that others. Would not swap the Chelsea performance despite the low possession.
    In some eyes Pardew is damned whatever choices he makes. On the one hand RH 9doubts the young players have any chance under Pardew then Pardew is condemned for not playing Aniatbeen left out to accomadate the young players Rivi and Cabella the very players who have

    Rivierre has been unlucky though hasn’t he, to be fair to him. Being thrown straight into that thankless and unfamiliar task of leading the line alone and almost entirely isolated, against unforgiving EPL defences, I think largely because of Dejong and Cisse’s injury problems, and then getting injured himself, and coming back in contention to a side set up differently.

    Sissoko runs from deeper, while De Jong you’d think will play closer to the attacker so might expect to see better from Rivierre when De Jong returns, although that will pose a number of selection and tactical problems when it does happen.

    Rivis best position is out left, Ameobi deserves to keep his place at the moment and he also has Aarons for competition. Way too early to write him off though same as Cabella. Not all transfers work our immediately many never at all. Janmaat Colback and Perez have all performed to or above expectations.
