Magpie Reveals Role International Boss Wants Him To Play



Bruno Guimaraes has given an interesting interview to French outlet L’Equipe which Sport Witness has translated and published. Newcastle’s star playmaker has touched on the difference in his role on Tyneside with that of his former club Lyon.

Bruno has taken Newcastle by storm, especially in front of goal, with 8 goals in 31 appearances since his arrival in January. That output drastically differs from his 3 goals in 71 appearances with Lyon. The difference comes down to the way Eddie Howe has utilized the Brazilian international.

In his comments to L’Equipe, Bruno revealed that Brazilian boss Tite plans to use him as Howe has in more of a creative role rather than the defensive one at Lyon. Here is what the recently-turned 25-year-old told the French outlet:

“I never doubted my quality. When I arrived, we had to keep up. This season we’ve had a great run.

“But my role here is completely different from my role in Lyon, I play like a number 8. I often find myself on the edge of the box to pass or score.

“I think that among midfielders, only Kevin De Bruyne is more involved in goal actions in the Championship. That means I do some interesting things. I like this game, defending and attacking. I’m freer than at OL.

“There, I was considered as a retriever who doesn’t have to pass the midfield too much. At Newcastle, I’m a creator. And Tite also wants to use me like that.”

While Guimaraes has anchored the three-man midfield for much of this season, he has consistently contributed to the attack. The hamstring injury to Jonjo Shelvey, who played the deeper role last season, has kept Bruno deeper to start this season.

Newcastle are in the hunt for a holding midfielder to free Bruno up even more. His exploits on Tyneside will hopefully result in more opportunities in this year’s World Cup. Bruno has 8 caps but his new attacking prowess should see him build on that in Qatar.

Which Would You Prefer Newcastle Achieve This Season?

    Aye, I knew there was some reason for it. Just couldn’t recall what it was.
    Brain cells are wasted. Plus, a trip to B&Q with the wife has quite easily forced me back onto the drink and the blog today 🙂

    Incidentally, did you know that Wilfred was actually a homosexual Irishman (according to Wiki). He was originally married but divorced her in 1955 when she gave birth to their lodgers child!
    Only 6 people attended his funeral.

    Any cup will do. If you don’t win the league nobody cares. At least a cup is a win. We don’t have enough depth to compete in Europe and the league at the moment. That will change over a few windows. So a cup would be fantastic. Something to cheer about even of some have belittled winning one in the past.

    Anyone watched England v All Blacks. You lot kicked the ball off the pitch to get a draw, when you had possession and a chance to attack. Typical poms, lacking in balls 🙂

    Wow makes me wonder how he would have felt with Ashley as the owner?

    SOUNESS HATED NEWCASTLE JOB
    The pundit spoke about his managerial career.

    “I don’t think anything would tempt me back into management. The relationship you have to have with the people upstairs who should be below you. I just do not want to be answerable to the type of people who are making football decisions. My last job, it was the worst job I had at Newcastle, it was a horrible job,” Souness said.

    I’m genuinely so shocked the majority want short term gains(a cup win) over long term success(top 4 qualification)

    A cup means nothing to me compared to finishing in the top 4 and making champions league.

    Leaving prestige aside, you get easily 10 times the money by simply qualifying for the CL over winning even the best cup like the FA cup and again that’s just for qualifying. Then you have the massive difference it will make to players who we can realistically attract to the club.

    It would also make a massive difference to how we are perceived internationally. No one outside of England will even know we won a cup or care.
    Then you have the insane increase in revenue that advertising will bring as a CL club and the type of sponsorship we could attract.

    I was genuinely expecting it to be a landslide win for top 4 option, easily 90% plus.

    It kinda saddens me that so many are happy to give up or put off or delay the long term success just to win a crappy cup.

    Munster why post a comment like that seriously, I feel like defending you so often because a lot of what you say is actually pretty accurate just not what people want to hear. But you make it do hard with needless comments like that.

    Another good news for France ( a very great one this time…):

    Benzema injured today in training. New injury, not the previous one…

    Was it first training with the squad, seem his old injury wasn’t a problem, but he picked up a new one.

    We got a saying in France: “quand ça veut pas, ça veut pas.”

    Deschamps got until monday to call a new player.

    It doesn’t matter what people want or think. The team will do what it does, it’s not like we’re going to get an official vote that will decide the outcome.

    I didn’t say that I never wanted a top four finish. I just prefer a cup this year. I can wait until next year for the rest.
