Jonas excited about Newcastle debut

Newcastle United winger Jonas Gutierrez is excited about the prospect of making his Premiership debut against champions Manchester United.

Jonas will come up against United's star Argie Carlos Tevez and told the Evening Chronicle: "I have spoke to Carlos about the game.

"It would be good to play against him - but Manchester United have a lot of other quality players. It is not just Carlos, they have players like Ryan Giggs and Michael Carrick playing.

"There are so many more important players involved in the game."

Gutierrez has admitted he signed for Newcastle to play in huge games like Sunday's clash and revealed his family will be watching back home.

He added: "The world will be watching this game. In Argentina you can watch all of the Premier League games and my family will tuning in to this one.

"This is one of the biggest games in the world. They will not want to miss it."
