Currently spending time with the Brazilian national team, Newcastle United midfielder Bruno Guimarães has now spoken to the local media by taking part in Globo Esporte’s podcast Gringolandia.

The 24-year-old had a lot to say about the busy months he’s been having this year, as he left Lyon to join the Magpies and has been working hard on his adaptation to the Premier League.

It turns out that Bruno’s little time in England has already been enough for him to get some love from Newcastle United fans. He spoke a little about it, making clear he’s thrilled at having a chant for him for the first time in his career.

“The fans are in love with me, which is something I did not even have at Athletico, where I was an idol and won one of the major titles in the history of the club,” Guimarães told Globo Esporte.

“The fans here have already made a chant, shirts with my photo (laughs). Shirt with several pictures of me. If I make a backward pass, it’s ‘Bruno! Bruno! Bruno!’. When I scored, they wanted to invade the pitch. It’s been too cool, I’m enjoying it so much here.”

Bruno Guimarães started his time at Newcastle getting few minutes on the pitch, and was slowly able to convince Eddie Howe that he’s ready for a starting spot in the team.

For Brazil, he still fights for a place in the World Cup squad, and will hopefully use the international break to impress manager Tite. That determination to go to Qatar will surely continue to help Newcastle, both this season and in the first months of the next campaign.
