Newcastle United new 22 year-old striker has revealed that his former team-mate at Deportivo La Coruna team-mate Fabricio Coloccini told him all about Newcastle and Tyneside, before he joined yesterday, on a £5.5M deal.
Xisco – glowing report from Coloccini on Newcastle United
It seems that Fabricio gave him a glowing report of things on Tyneside as Xisco told nufc.co.uk yesterday:
“I spoke with Colo and he told me all about the club and the city,”
“He said it was a great place and that it would make him very happy if I joined him at Newcastle.”
“Of course I know Colo and also Jose Enrique from Spain under-21,” “There are also other Spanish speakers and that will be a big help to begin with.”
“But I want to work on my English and learn the language within the first few months.” “That is important because I will be able to get to know all of my team-mates and also settle in the area.”
That’s good to hear from Xisco – and from Fabricio.
But both players may find they have a new manager shortly as the news doesn’t look good about Kevin, there are too many legitimate news agencies now reporting he’s been sacked.
