The football world has showed its support for Newcastle United’s Jonas Gutierrez on Twitter, after the Argentinian winger announced that he is being treated for testicular cancer in his native country.

The 31-year-old revealed that he is undergoing chemotherapy after having surgery following the discovery of a tumour, which was first diagnosed last October.

“When I was told I had cancer, I went home in tears” he said.

“In May 2013, I felt very tough pains on my testicle. After some wrong diagnosis, an ultrasound detected the tumour.”

“I came here and I assumed the costs despite having a contract with Newcastle. Money is not important. What is important is my health. I had to start chemotherapy.”

Norwich City, the club where Gutierrez spent the second-half of last season, said in a statement: “The club has been aware of Jonas’s condition for some time but has respected his wish for privacy as he undergoes treatment with his friends and family around him.”

Lee Charnley, the club’s managing director, added: “We have and will continue to offer Jonas our full support.”

“We thank our fans for their kind messages of support for Jonas and the thoughts and best wishes of everyone connected to Newcastle United are with him at this time.”

There has been outpouring support coming in for him since then, with various figures from within the game sending messages of good luck as he begins his final phase of treatment.


Sending my thoughts and best wishes to Newcastle player Jonas Gutierrez who is battling Testicular Cancer.. Early diagnosis huge factor.
