Jonas Gutierrez has revealed that he can’t face going to St. James’ Park at the moment, instead the Newcastle midfielder watches the matches at home, rather than in the flesh.
Jonas adding that he find it difficult to be in the dressing room when he’s not involved in first team action, though he is hoping to one day make that leap back into the first team.
“It’s hard for me and for now, I prefer to be at home and watch on TV – it is hard to be in the changing room at the moment.
“I’ve been at the club and in this city for seven years, the welcome fans from the day I arrived from the supporters has been special, I’ve always had a special relationship with them.”
Two weeks away?;
“I have been improving in every match and now I feel really good, maybe in two weeks I will be 100 per cent – hen maybe I can sprint past someone in a one on one, but that’s the last part of being ready to play, it is normal.
“I have to have this in my locker before I play because that was always one of the most important parts on my game – getting past players.”
“I feel I’m now close and maybe I will have to buy a new Spiderman mask.
“I have played in a World Cup but if I play again for Newcastle, that will be the best moment of my career.”
