Magpies await Jonas verdict
11 Sep 2008 - 08:19:56
Newcastle United are anxiously awaiting news of Jonas Gutierrez after the winger was stretchered off the pitch in Argentina's draw with Peru on Wednesday with a shoulder injury.
The £12million summer signing from Real Mallorca collided with Peru's Paolo De La Haza in the first half of the World Cup qualifier in Lima.
Initial reports suggested the 25-year-old winger had suffered a dislocated shoulder which could keep him out of action for a number of months.
However, Argentinian medical staff remain unsure over the extent of the injury.
"Jonas suffered a strong trauma to his right shoulder and he will need more medical examinations," said a spokesperson for the AFA.
Jonas has featured in all four of the Magpies' games this season following his arrival at St James' Park in July.
