    The 25-year-old opened up on the interest from Premier League champions Manchester City in signing him, stressing that he will stay at St James Park despite the interest from the Premier League giants.

    As usual, a shot and interest from a big club like Manchester City would have expectedly rattled and poised up the contract of a typical Toon player, but in the case of Bruno Guimaraes, it seems the Brazilian is not carried away by City’s interest.

    Bruno Guimaraes said he had ignored the advances of Man City manager Pep Guardiola who has been a great admirer of the player, trying to lure him to Etihad.

    Speaking after bagging his award as the North East Football Writer’s Player of the Year, Bruno Guimaraes ruled out a potential move to Manchester City, insisting he can win trophies and also play in the Champions League with Newcastle United.

    Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola had reportedly interrupted his post-match press conference after City’s 2-0 victory over Newcastle to confess his admiration for Guimaraes, telling the talented Brazil midfielder, he is a ‘good player.’

    However, Bruno Guimaraes reaffirmed his commitment to play for the Toons and had played down the club’s trophy drought over the years, insisting the greener days are not far ahead.

    Speaking on Sunday after bagging the North East Football Writer’s award on Sunday, Guimaraes said Newcastle can attain and match Manchester City’s success in the Premier League in the nearest future given the current strides of the team and expertise brought into bear by current Newcastle manager Eddie Howe.

    Guimaraes passed a vote of confidence on Eddie Howe, applauding the great job done by the English football veteran.

    Bruno Guimaraes tipped Eddie Howe for the England national team job due to what he has accomplished with Newcastle in the Premier League this season.

    ‘I’m sure that in the future he will be the England manager because he’s an amazing guy, an amazing manager,’ Guimaraes said.

    ‘If we see what we did last season, we were a team that was fighting against relegation. Now we have got to a final, we’re fighting for the Champions League. This club will be in the Champions League every year in the future.

    Expressly optimistic about the club’s potential, Bruno Guimaraes revealed he is happy at Newcastle and buoyed to be a part of the revolution at the club.

    He reiterated his endearing passion to win a trophy for the club.

    ‘What makes me happy is knowing that this is just the first year. We have the potential to be a giant in the world. I’m happy and proud to be part of the revolution of the team, of the city, and of everyone because the city is about football. I can feel it since I signed up for the club. This is very special for me.

    ‘I know what a title means for the club’s story. People grow up and they never see Newcastle as champions. My motivation here is to win a title for the club.’

    The North East Football Writer’s Player of the Year Award is Bruno Fernandes’ first individual award as a Newcastle player.

    The Brazil international has been instrumental in the Magpies’ bid to challenge for a top-four finish this season.
    He has made 18 Premier League appearances for Newcastle United this season, scoring three goals and delivering three assists.

    Newcastle narrowly missed out on landing their first trophy in years after losing the Carabao Cup final at Wembley to Manchester United. They are keenly in the top-four race this season.

    After the Manchester City defeat, Bruno Guimaraes will hope to return Newcastle to winning ways when they take on Wolves in their next Premier League fixture.
