Jonas Is Training - But What Now?

Last updated : 13 December 2014 By Footy Mad - Editor

It is just over a month after he was given the all-clear from cancer.

The winger was told, by Alan Pardew, he had no future at St James' Park and loaned out to Norwich City.

And that still burdens the Toon favourite.

He has made it public what Pardew said and the Newcastle manager is in a strange position, being urged on by fans to at least give the player a chance.

Jonas missed the start of the season after being diagnosed with testicular cancer over the summer, returning home to Argentina to undergo treatment.

The 31-year-old trained alongside his teammates at the club's Benton training ground on Friday after returning to Newcastle earlier this week.

Pardew has said that the club will not rush Gutierrez back into action, but is that another way of saying he won't get a game before his contract ends.

Pardew is desperate for public favour at the moment, coming so close to the exit door a couple of months ago, and he knows putting Jonas on the bench would give him a lot of respect with the Toon Army.
