Another injury to a first-team player is the last thing Newcastle United needs at this time.
During this international break, Bruno Guimaraes and Joelinton are representing Brazil, so it’s a nervous moment for the Geordies, who are already lamenting Newcastle’s thin roster.
If the players weren’t leaving for international assignments, which prevents them from practising with the team, getting any real rest, and putting themselves in danger by playing extra games, a two-week break would be perfect right now.
Late at night, Bruno has been tweeting mysterious things.
Bruno Guimaraes posted a message on X just after midnight yesterday that featured just three emojis: a foot, a fire, and the angry face.

We know that Bruno has been struggling with an ankle injury for a long time now and maybe it has flared up again.
Fans are speculating now what it means and are terrified that it could mean he’s picked up a knock.
All we can hope for is that Bruno is well enough to play Chelsea in two weeks
However, it’s also possible that he is simply ready to carry out his current mission; after all, his Instagram reels demonstrate that he is content and enjoying his life in Brazil at the moment, showing no signs of harm.
Only he currently knows what it means, but we’ll find out when Brazil plays Colombia in a few days and whether he starts in the starting lineup.
We sincerely hope that Bruno returns from his international duty unscathed and ready to play because we really, really, really missed him last weekend when we played Bournemouth.
