Igrač Newcastle United-a Jonas Gutierrez bije bitku svog života. Naime, njemu je dijagnostikovan rak testisa.

Kako je sam Jonas izjavio, problem je nastao prilikom sudara sa Bacary Sagna-om u meču poslednjeg kola Premier League u sezoni 2012/13. Levi testis je posle meča počeo da mu otiče i posle skeniranja dijagnostikovan mu je rak. Jonas je podrvgnut hirurškoj operaciji, gde mu je levi testis odstranjen. Uporedo je primao i hemoterapiju.

"When I confirmed that I had cancer I went home crying. This was the most difficult game I had to play.
"I detected a tumour in a testicle. I came here and I assumed the costs, despite having a contract with Newcastle.

"Money is not important. What is important is health and I had to start chemotherapy. It was hard to find my hair falling out. I did not want to cut it. I wanted to hold on.
"Fighting cancer makes the rest of the problems are insignificant. I decided to tell my story because maybe is will help people who have cancer."

"I removed the left testicle. I returned to England and Newcastle told me to leave.

Dobiće i ovu bitku naš Jonas, ubeđen sam u to.
