The international break has seen Newcastle United send out the latest email ‘from’ Fabricio Coloccini.

The Newcastle Captain says that he has loved every minute that he has spent at Newcastle United.

Something which would seem a little bit at odds with him trying to leave during the relegation struggle of 2012/13 and seemingly having thoughts of leaving this past summer.

Coloccini says that the Steve McClaren ‘new and exciting style of play’ is starting to come together, something which will be severely tested against Leicester.

The United Captain praises the support and the strength of being a ‘one-club city’.

Let’s hope Fabricio Coloccini’s optimism is well placed as Newcastle look to build on the Bournemouth result that lifted them out of the relegation zone.

Fabricio Coloccini:

“You are loyal, passionate and knowledgeable fans, the best in football as far as I’m concerned.

“Even when we haven’t managed to get the result we wanted from a game, you’ve been able to see what we were trying to do throughout the game and have given us your backing all the way.

“I have to say your support has been like that all season.

“We are adapting to a new and exciting style of play under Steve McClaren and we’re starting to see things come together now. 

“First and foremost we want to win, of course, but we also want to entertain and give you the kind of football you want to see from your team.  That’s certainly our aim as the season progresses.

“I have lived in this football-mad city since 2008 and have loved every minute of it.”

“I have played football all over the world and experienced many different stadiums but there are few that can match St. James’ Park. We are a one-club city and the Geordies are very special.

“That’s why when we step out onto the field to represent your city, we do our absolute best to repay your support each and every time.”
