Newcastle winger Jonas: Pardew just like Maradona!

Newcastle United winger Jonas Gutierrez has likened manager Alan Pardew to Diego Maradona!

Jonas enjoyed a good relationship with Maradona when he was in charge of Argentina.

"I play most of my best games on the left wing but because of the injuries we've had this season I've had to be more in the middle of midfield and it's been harder," he told the Guardian.

"But in some ways Alan Pardew is a bit like Diego Maradona. They are different people but they are both passionate for football. They have a real thing for it; they think about it in the same way."
