Reasons Revealed Why Coloccini Leaving Newcastle Looks Inevitable

8 years ago

Newcastle fans were stunned when news came last January that Coloccini leaving Newcastle wasn’t simply yet more unsubstantiated speculation on the Tyneside rumour mill.

From the first news of the possible departure, details quickly emerged that Coloccini had indeed stated his desire to leave St.James’ Park but for ‘personal reasons’ rather than anything to do with the team or club.

While United’s captain ended up staying on Tyneside, the general perception amongst fans was that it was simply down to the economics of the situation, with Mike Ashley understandably not willing to give Colo a cheap way out of the club after Newcastle had invested so much money in both transfer fee and wages.

However, the Sunday Sun have now given us an insight into just how difficult Coloccini’s position was back in January and in all likelihood still is, a delicate balance between professional and personal life.

The United’s captain’s wife, Natalia Coloccini, has used Twitter to express her emotions and making clear to Newcastle fans, ultimately the impact personal events have had on his football career at Newcastle.

The Sunday Sun have translated tweets sent by Coloccini’s wife from Spanish into English;

“The heart always has a limit when the heart says enough there is no going back.”

“We ignored each other until we became strangers with shared memories.”

“These are my wings, just have to fly, let go of things that no longer belong to you.”

“My heart is hanging from your hands.”

“I love him even though I know I have to forget him I’m frightened to think about life without him, so many years good or bad I cannot change them.”
