7 years ago

Born in Buenos Aires, Jonas Gutierrez joined local club Velez Sarsfield as a kid and eventually made his senior debut in the 2001/02 season at the age of eighteen.

Jonas went on to play 104 first team matches spread over four seasons, in the final year at the club he helped Velez Sarsfield to the League Title.

Following the revelation that he is fighting cancer, Velez Sarfeld have released a tribute video to Jonas Gutierrez, which includes footage of Jonas playing as a kid, as well as celebrating that league title dressed only in his underpants!

The video is entitled;

‘Fuerza Galgo, Fuerza Jonas’

Galgo means Greyhound, one of Jonas’ nicknames, while Fuerza translates to

‘A quality of spirit that enables you to face danger or pain without showing fear’

We’ll join Jonas’ first club in expressing the same sentiments and enjoy the video footage.
