Bruno Guimaraes has named the four Premier League legends that he wishes he could play alongside.
Back in January 2022, Guimaraes left French side Olympique Lyon for Premier League outfit Newcastle United in a deal worth a reported £40 million.
Since then, the Brazilian has developed into one of the finest players in the top flight as he has played an integral part in Newcastle’s revival.
In a recent interview with the Premier League, Guimaraes named four former players that he wishes he could play with.
He said: “To play with, I love Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard, Wayne Rooney but as a Newcastle player I have to choose Alan Shearer.
“I think if I played with him I would have more assists.”
The midfielder also spoke about the welcome he received from the Newcastle fans.
He said: “They have been amazing with me, with my wife, with my dad, with my mum, with everyone. Every match they sing my name, every time.
“It has given me a lot of confidence to play.”
Guimaraes continued: “To be honest, I wasn’t expecting this with the fans [when I signed for Newcastle].
“I just want to say thank you to all of them.”
When he married his girlfriend, Newcastle teammate Joelinton was his best man.
Guimaraes said: “He is like my brother.
“When I started [at Newcastle] I couldn’t speak one word [of English]… I would [only] say daddy, mum.”
He continued: “He helped me a lot, with everything.
“Joe is someone who if you ask him to do something to help the team, to change position, he will do.”
Newcastle will be back in Premier League action this weekend as they travel to the Etihad Stadium to face champions Manchester City.
Currently, the Magpies are ninth in the league table, two points behind Manchester United.
