Just weeks after helping his side Newcastle from being relegated, Jonas Gutierrez is finally opening up about his time at the club and he does not have any kind words for the club’s owner Mike Ashley who allowed the player to leave the club during this season’s summer break.
The 31-year old, who proved to be the vital man in Newcastle’s win in their last Premier League game, took to his Twitter account to express his frustration with how the club is being managed as well as thank the Newcastle fans. Here is what Gutierrez, who started the 2014-2015 season battling testicular cancer, Tweeted regarding his stay at Newcastle United.
“Two things I learn from my illness how you can support a player (Newcastle fans) and how you leave a player alone (Newcastle owner).”
Also leaving the club is Ryan Taylor. Newcastle will be undergoing a total overhaul for next season as they look to finish in the top half of the table.
While confirming their departure, Newcastle’s Lee Charnley, who is the club’s director, said that, “Ryan and Jonas have both contributed significantly to Newcastle United over a number of years and on behalf of the board, I would like to place on record our sincere thanks to both players for the excellent service they have given the club.
“It was a great pleasure to see Ryan and Jonas come back into the team in recent weeks and compete at the highest level after the injury and illness battles they have had to overcome. To come through those difficult periods with such strength and dignity will have given hope and inspiration to many and it is clear that our supporters have a deep connection and affection for both players, as does everyone associated with the club.”
