Within the next 24 hours it’s expected that Newcastle will issue their retained list of players, and they will allow Jonas Gutierrez, Ryan Taylor and Sammy Ameobi to move on after their contracts run out at the end of June.
Jonas Gutierrez after scoring on Sunday
And fans will be sorry to see Jonas Gutierrez leave after he has played so well for the club this year, after coming back from a two year fight with testicular cancer, and he had a great game on Sunday against West Ham and made one and scored one and was out man of the Match.
He was also on the Premier League team for last weekend and the European team and judged the top European player of the weekend.
Not bad for his final game at Newcastle – his best ever performance for the club when we needed it most.
Jonas thinks deeply about the club he’s been at for seven years, and he has offered this advice for those who run the club, when asked how he thought this summer would go:
“That’s a good question for the owner.” “I think the club has to learn what has happened in the last few years when they have been in charge of the club.”
“It’s important to think about good and bad decisions. It’s good for learning, and to improve.” “They have to take note about what has happened during the last few years.”
“They have to think what they are going to do, if they are going to go forward. They have to think about what is best for the city.”
A number of fans would like to see him stay on Tyneside, but on the other hand this is a perfect time for him to leave the club – and he will be remembered as a hero and legend for Newcastle in future years.
Jonas Gutierrez played 205 times for Newcastle with 12 goals.
