We thought Fabricio Coloccini (what a name!) played extremely well yesterday in his debut and looked very accomplished alongside local boy Steven Taylor, who had also had another terrific game.
Fabricio Coloccini – fantastic acquisition
We had though before the game that Kevin would plsay Coloccini since he was keen to play and didnâ€™t seem to be at all faxed it was Old Trafford â€“ a very good sign for a player by the way.
But it turns out that Kevin didnâ€™t have any choice since Claudio Cacapa was injured and Kevin had little choice:
Kevin talked to the Evening Chronicle today:
â€œI didnâ€™t have any other option as I lost Claudio Cacapa through injury on Friday, but I didnâ€™t have any worries about it.â€
â€œColoccini has only trained with the players once, but when youâ€™ve played 20-odd games for Argentina, coming to Old Trafford wonâ€™t faze you.â€
â€œI just told him to go out and enjoy it, which he did.â€ â€œHe was saying it was very quick and that he could make more passes normally.â€
â€œI think heâ€™s a fantastic acquisition.â€
Well he certainly looked a fantastic acquisition the way he played yesterday – that’s for sure.
