Fabricio Coloccini Leaving Newcastle – Again?

8 years ago

The uneasy truce that appeared to have calmed down the Coloccini leaving Newcastle rumours. looks to have been blown apart once again.

Quoted in the media back in his native Argentina, Fabricio Coloccini is claimed to have told them;

“You never know what will happen in football, in January we did all that we could to make a return to San Lorenzo but I always made it clear then that Newcastle would have the last word.

“The club’s invested a lot in me and I must show them respect.

“However, I have to speak the truth and I’d like to return there (San Lorenzo) as soon as possible.”

While there is no doubt Coloccini is a very good player, on his day, the point comes when if our captain is still committed to leaving then maybe we should just stick to those players who are desperate to STAY at Newcastle United, rather than those waiting for the right opportunity to leave our club.

If Alan Pardew chooses to leave Mapou/Williamson intact at centre-back then it could well send everybody a signal that the Newcastle manager is planning ahead for life without his captain.
