Jonas Gutierrez Is Home Alone
Opinion has already been divided on Jonas Gutierrez.
Fans generally either see him as a winger who doesn’t score goals or create chances, or a valuable workhorse who creates a stage for more creative players to do their stuff.
What I don’t think should be in doubt is that Jonas has had pretty shabby treatment from the club after being a decent servant and somebody who hardly ever missed through injury, whilst always giving his all.
Now it has emerged that Gutierrez is training by himself in Argentina after being frozen out by the club. Surely a real folly considering how weak/small the Newcastle squad is, especially with the club still paying his wages and a year left on his contract.
Previous reports suggested that if Jonas played many more games then he would have been guaranteed a new contract under the terms of his current one, whatever the case there surely this could have been handled so much better.
The Chronicle have reported a friend of Jonas saying;
“Jonas is training in Argentina on his own – he’s looking for a new club and there appears to be no future at Newcastle at the moment.”
When Jonas moved to Norwich on loan he said;
“The manager told me I wasn’t going to be playing any more and to find myself another club.
“I don’t know why it happened and still don’t understand what I did wrong.
“Alan Pardew just said I needed to leave and that was that – I honestly do not know why I wasn’t playing, you would have to ask the manager that.”
