Jonas Gutierrez: ‘Mike Ashley made Newcastle axe me because I had cancer’

He said he was told to find another club by Pardew in a brief meeting in December 2013, two months after undergoing surgery.

“Shortly after my return to the club from chemotherapy, I was called into Mr Pardew’s office,” he said.

“Mr Pardew apologised for the way he had treated me in December 2013, when he told me I was not wanted by the club any longer but he said that this was not his decision.

“I understood by this that the decision was actually that of the club’s owner, Mike Ashley.”
