Pardew “There’s No Reason Why We Can’t Cope Without Coloccini”
Alan Pardew gave us the bad news first at today’s pre-Liverpool press conference, revealing that Fabricio Coloccini would be missing for Saturday’s match.
The manager commenting;
Alan Pardew confirmed it was an injury to his captain’s groin but was upbeat when it came to how the team would cope without the centre-back;
“There is no reason why we can’t cope without Colo. Psychologically we are in a completely different place to then (last season’s 0-6), we were coming off the back of a defeat to Sunderland then. Now though we we are in a much better place and I think we will give a much better account of ourselves.
It is probably the heaviest defeat I’ve had as a manager and you have to make sure it doesn’t happen again. You have to pick yourself up after it which we did, take some kind of positive and make sure it doesn’t happen again.”
