Newcastle fans ‘incredible’, says departed club hero

Recently released Newcastle star Jonas Gutierrez has described Magpies fans as “incredible”.

Argentine’s spell in the North East recently came to an end, but having signed for the club from Mallorca in 2008, he went through a lot at St James’ Park.

Relegation in his debut season was followed by immediate promotion back to the Premier League, and the now 31-year-old then played a big role in keeping the Tynesiders in the top tier.

And in an exclusive interview with Football FanCast, Gutierrez took the time to celebrate fans of the club:

“How do you describe a fan of Newcastle? They breathe football.” He said

“[No matter what happens in the week] They are happy or sad if the team wins or loses, it’s incredible.

“You can see the difference around the city if the team has won or lost.”

Gutierrez, who was recently released by the club, spoke to us ahead of Newcastle’s successful final day battle against relegation from the Premier League, and gave a fascinating insight into life with the Tyneside club.
