Pardew Loves Curly Hair Too

8 years ago

Alan Pardew has once again reminded us all of Fabricio Coloccini’s importance to his team.

After a troubled few months for Newcastle United’s captain, during which he expressed a desire to return to his native Argentina and was subject of interest from San Lorenzo, Alan Pardew has now expressed the hope that Coloccini will stay on Tyneside for years to come.

He is very important. A very calming influence.

Hopefully he will stay for a lot longer than just this year. Last year when he wasn’t playing there was something missing from the team; that’s why it is so important he stays.”

After United’s relegation in the Argentinian’s first season with the club, Coloccini remained on Tyneside to help the Magpies back into the Premier League and was a key figure in their rise to fifth place in the League two seasons ago.

Coloccini is a key member of Pardew’s squad at United and leader & first choice centre-back alongside any one of Steven Taylor, Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa and Mike Williamson, with Matthieu Debuchy at right back and Davide Santon at left-back.
