We learned yesterday that Jonas Gutierrez proposed move to Velez Sarsfield in Buenos Aries broke down, and he did not join the club he played for at the start of his career from 2001 through 2004, before he moved to Real Mallorca.
Jonas Gutierrez – will he play again for Newcastle?
Now Jonas is back in Newcastle and it’s not surprising that he wants to play for Newcastle again before his contract runs out at the nd of June.
Jonas has appeared only twice for Newcastle since the summer of 2013, and the rumor was that if Jonas reached a certain number of games for the club they would have to offer him a new deal.
We don’t know if that’s true, but another clause could be that if he reached a certain number of game then Newcastle would have to pay him a bonus, and we know that Newcastle are good at one thing – not spending money.
It’s hard to know if his contract is the reason he’s played only twice for us in the last 18 months and of course in that time he successfully fought his testicular cancer, and fans would love to see him in the black and white shirt again.
Jonas has played 194 times for Newcastle with 11 goals.
This is what Jonas said:
“I have played in a World Cup but if I play again for Newcastle then that will be the best moment of my career,” To get back after the cancer and chemotherapy, to put all that behind me, would be a huge moment. I feel really good. Maybe in two weeks I will be at 100%.”
“The welcome from the fans from the day I arrived has been special. So if I come back and play for Newcastle then, of course, it will be the best. It will be emotional.” “I haven’t been to the stadium. It is hard to go and not be involved.”
“For now, I prefer to watch on TV at home. But, of course, I want to return to the first team.” “When I was told about the cancer I went home to my dad and cried,” he said. “Then it was hard to find my hair falling out.”
“But I was always positive and I told my family and friends, ‘Listen, the most important thing is to be healthy again.’ Fighting cancer made other problems seem insignificant.”
There are so many ways that Newcastle United can become a better club under current owner Mike Ashley.
As well as being a lot more ambitious and being willing to spend a lot more money on the playing squad, the club can start treating their fans a lot better and have some heart.
Newcastle should play Jonas Gutierrez when he’s fit at least once at St. James’ Park in front of the supporters – and to heck with his contract – if that’s why he hasn’t played for so long.
The fans will then have a chance to show the Argentine they love him and thank him for the seven years he’s been at the club, and also honor him for his courageous fight in beating cancer.
That’s what Newcastle should do.
Everything at the Newcastle club doesn’t always have to be about money.
