Bruno Guimaraes knows how to win over the Newcastle United fans - he can play us like a fiddle.

There aren't many Newcastle players who rose to cult status as fast as Bruno Guimaraes. He's a phenomenal player who has been essential to Newcastle's rise under the new regime, but he's also such a nice, kind-hearted person who gives as much back to the fans as they give him.

He's always happy to pose for photographs, although it's his dad who gets the most attention in fairness. On the field he interacts with the crowd during the game, celebrating with the crowd for the most routine of things like on Saturday when he celebrated blocking a Sunderland clearance as if he'd just scored a goal.

The question was teed up for Bruno to knock it out of the park

We love him, he loves us and more importantly, he always seems to know the right things to say.

In his Ask Me Anything interview for the Premier League, he was asked which Premier League icon he'd most like to have played with, and after throwing out a couple of names - Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard and Wayne Rooney before delivering the correct answer.

"I loved Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard, Wayne Rooney but as a Newcastle player I'd have to choose Alan Shearer. I think if I played with him I'd have more assists."

Bruno absolutely loves it at Newcastle, you can see it in his eyes

We're not sure Alexander Isak and Callum Wilson would be too happy with the last part of that answer, Bruno.

Imagine Bruno and Shearer though? What a combination that would be.

This was another one of those interviews where you can see just how much Newcastle United means to him and how any talk of him leaving in the near future is sheer rubbish.
