NEWCASTLE United star Jonas Gutierrez has revealed he has testicular cancer.
The midfielder in an interview in his native Argentina, says he had a testicle removed after discovering a tumour.
Now the player, who went on loan to Norwich last season, is recuperating in Argentina after undergoing chemotherapy treatment.
In an interview with TyC Sports he said: “I detected a tumor in a testicle . When I confirmed the cancer, I went home crying.
“I came here and I assumed the costs despite having a contract with Newscastle. Money is not important.What is important is the health. I had to start chemotherapy . “I had the operation in Argentina, I removed the left testicle. I returned to England and Newcastle told me to leave.”
