Jonas Gutierrez emerged triumphant from his battle with Mike Ashley and Newcastle United.
A brave decision by Jonas to take on the ruthless and manipulative owner of the club but even Mike Ashley has to, eventually, bow down to the law of the land.
Just like Kevin Keegan before him, Jonas discovered that the Ashley PR campaign would be in full swing before, during and after the tribunal – trying to turn supporters against the player.
During the hearing, Jonas Gutierrez was reduced to tears as Mike Ashley’s legal team tore into the former Newcastle player, claiming his only motivation in bringing the case was greed/money.
Following in the footsteps of Kevin Keegan, Jonas wanted to expose Mike Ashley and his minions for what they are doing to our club.
So no surprise that after the verdict was made public and the player vindicated in his action against Ashley and the club, he wanted to shout it from the rooftops.
Jonas Gutierrez sending out a series of passionate messages via his Twitter account.
Maybe it could be best summed up as Hate Ashley, Love Newcastle United.
This is what Jonas had to say:
‘I am a Geordie, thanks Newcastle fans for your support. I love the city. I hope WE stay up. Come on the toon. Once a Geordie always a Geordie.’
‘How made a club is the fans – not the players, not the board. Always in my heart Geordie nation. I love you.’
‘I am a Geordie, I love Newcastle. Thanks to the fans. Board you understand what it means that?’
‘Board, I am a f***ing Geordie.’
‘The Way they threat(en) me Is not the Way. Anyway I am a f***ing Geordie.’
‘I hope we stay up come (on) Rafa come (on) the Team, the city deserve(s) that.’
‘Ashley, one thing you don’t understand (about) Newcastle, you don’t understand the fans and the city. We deserved more. We are The Geordie Nation.’
‘We deserve to stay up.’
