Newcastle boss Hughton happy to grant Jonas time off

Newcastle United boss Chris Hughton is happy to give Jonas Gutierrez a rest after the World Cup.

Hughton does not want to see Gutierrez suffer from the effects of the tournament in South Africa following on from United's marathon trek in the Coca-Cola Championship.

He told the Evening Chronicle: "What he will do is come back later than the rest.

"It's important that he comes back injury-free, and we hope he has a good World Cup.

"The most important thing is that he comes back injury-free - that's a must.

"We, of course, will have to make decisions regarding when he comes back, depending on how far he goes in the competition."
