Eagle-eyed fans spot Bruno Guimaraes touching down in Brazil clutching TESCO bag… as fans call him ‘the new Tierney’ | The Sun

A LUXURY wash bag and Louis Vuitton backpack tend to be the baggage of choice for most professional footballers when making their way from the team bus to the dressing room.

But Newcastle's Bruno Guimaraes appears to have bucked that trend by clutching a TESCO bag as he got off the team bus while on international duty.


Eagle-eyed fans pointed out the rogue move on Twitter, with one fan saying: "Creased, why's he taken a Tesco bag with him to Brazil."

One fan replied: "Must have needed some extra bag space and every little helps."

Another wrote: "Wonder what 3 beers he'd choose on the Clubcard deal."

Many Newcastle fans also pointed out that he'd likely packed the bag full of kinder chocolate, after he revealed his love for it on Newcastle's Amazon Prime documentary.

The player said in the documentary: "I'm on a diet, I don't like to drink but I have a problem with sweet things.

"Chocolate is my weakness. It's better I stop talking about chocolate."

His wife then revealed that Kinder Eggs were the midfield star's Achilles heel.

Fans also compared the midfielder to Arsenal star Kieran Tierney.

Tierney, the originator of the Tesco bag trend, caused a stir when he was spotted carrying his boots in the supermarket bag in 2020.

Guimaraes has not quite captured the same form this season as he has shown since signing for the club in January 2021.

In his four games this season, the midfielder has failed to register a single goal or assist.

He will be hoping to rediscover his form that helped propel Newcastle to the Champions League while on international duty with Brazil.
