Jonas Gutierrez attempts to lift Newcastle fans after nightmare
He may have taken Newcastle United (Mike Ashley!) to a disability discrimination tribunal due to his appalling treatment but Jonas Gutierrez still lives every minute as a Newcastle fan.
Following Newcastle’s match against Norwich, Jonas lived every moment just like us.
United were never ahead but came back twice to equalise, leading Jonas Gutierrez to believe that a positive result was possible.
The final 3-2 scoreline left Jonas gutted but urging Newcastle fans that they can still believe, despite Norwich going six points clear.
Jonas Gutierrez urges all Newcastle fans to still ‘believe’ – let’s hope he is right.
Jonas Gutierrez via Twitter:
“Vamos newcastle hoy, partido vital para la permanencia. Come on Newcastle, important game for survival. Always a geordie. Siempre Geordie.
