Pardew Pleads Ignorance On Coloccini Transfer

8 years ago

Alan Pardew decided to claim total ignorance of the latest Coloccini transfer push story.

When asked by journalists, the Newcastle manager said that he ‘wasn’t aware of that’ when quizzed about his captain.

Over in Argentina there have been quotes from Fabricio Coloccini in the newspapers saying he is committed to forcing a move to San Lorenzo in the January window.

Alan Pardew said;

“I was not aware of that if I’m honest. It is difficult though when the players go home and they do interviews. You never know if there’s any truth in it. I have not spoken to Colo about it.”

The United boss was put on the spot after the following was published in Argentina;

“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.”
