Newcastle midfielder Bruno Guimaraes revealed that he spoke to Arsenal over a transfer in the summer but wanted the move to Tyneside. The Brazilian said he used to feel the wrath of his taxi-driving father from the sidelines during his spell in Sao Paulo. He completed a £40m move to Newcastle in the summer and revealed that he still goes over his match with his father.

“When I was a kid, it was quite hard back then as my dad would speak to me quite a lot and give me a lot of criticism,” Newcastle midfielder Bruno Guimaraes said. “It was quite negative, but now I’m professional there’s a lot of praise. We do speak a lot but it’s a lot more positive – with constructive criticism!”

“Since I’ve arrived, it’s been incredible and I’m so happy to be here. I’m anxious to play more,” he added. “The fans here are really incredible, I’m very lucky. When I walk down the street, I take pictures with the fans and I’ve spoken with them a little. It’s very important for me to do this.”

“I don’t really like to drink alcohol, I don’t really go out,” he added. “I like to spend a lot of time with my girlfriend, my parents and my dogs – playing video games too plus catching up with friends. I’m really focused on what I want to do, plus I want to be the best I can.”
