and live on Freeview channel 276
Newcastle flew out to Dubai following last Friday’s 2-1 win at Nottingham Forest for a warm weather training camp during the international break. Ahead of the training sessions, The Magpies players were given a few days off to rest and recuperate.
Guimaraes, who missed out on a call-up to the Brazil national team, travelled to the Maldives with his partner, Ana Lidia Martins, via Dubai. Meanwhile, Joelinton returned to Brazil to visit friends and family before rejoining the squad in the United Arab Emirates.
After a few days training in temperatures around 30°C, the Newcastle players travelled back to England on Friday – as confirmed by Guimaraes on his Instagram account.
The 25-year-old midfielder posted a photo of himself, Joelinton and kitman Neil Stoker on the club’s chartered flight along with the caption: “Back to home.”
Reflecting on the trip, head coach Eddie Howe told NUFC TV: “We’ve enjoyed some good training. The lads have been excellent in their attitude. It’s been a smaller group with some on international duty but I’ve been really pleased with what the lads have produced.
“Initially, early in the week, there was a bit of relaxation for the players. As always with international breaks, you can’t keep them going the full time. It’s been a busy spell of games so this was a chance to enjoy the sun and each other in a different way.”
