Coloccini’s Two Broken Bones In His Back Could Mean He’s Played His Last Match For NUFC
While Alan Pardew earlier indicated Fabricio Coloccini could have played against Anzhi if it hadn’t been an artificial pitch, he has now revealed that his captain could be out for the rest of the season.
Coloccini has broken two bones in his back and the predicted recovery could be seven weeks, taking us into May.
“Colo has gone back to Argentina, there is no treatment he can have, he’s broken two bones in his back.
It could be anything between 3 and 7 weeks and he’s gone back (to Argentina) for a week”.
With not many fans holding out hope for Coloccini staying beyond this season, it could mean our captain has played his last match in black and white.
Maybe it is fate and ever since the fiasco throughout January regarding his future, it was always going to end in tears.
Let’s hope though that it is nearer three weeks than the seven (or more?) and we see him back on the pitch, not least because we have an awful lot still to play for in these remaining two months.
No doubt conspiracy theorists will be pondering on this injury allowing Colo to spend time in Argentina but I think the club have called it right letting the player head back over for a week to see his family before coming back to Tyneside for his recovery to be overseen and for him to do his captain’s role off the pitch.
