The Newcastle Argentine center-back, Fabricio Coloccini, is determined never to get his hair cut short again.
Fabricio Coloccini -will not get hair cut
It turns out that the Argentine did get his hair cut short once, during a difficult spell in Italy at AC Milan as a teenager – but he says he will never bow to player pressure again.
Coloccini said today:
“I will never cut off my hair.” “There was a time when I went to AC Milan and the older players like Costacurta and Maldini said: ‘You must cut your hair. It looks stupid. You must cut it.’
“I was so fed up of everybody’s comments I ended up having it cut. Never again.”
“Here at Newcastle, some of the players say: ‘Bad hair! Bad hair!’ But I don’t care what they say.”
Since this article went out one of our readers has sent in what Coloccini looked like after cropping his hair at AC Milan – we couldn’t resist putting the photo in.
Fabricio Coloccini – with short hair – sent in by one of our readers
We on the blog, had followed Coloccini when he played for Argentina in the World Cup in 2006 in Germany, and he looked more than a decent player in those days, and it has not taken Fabricio long to realize that Newcastle fans are full of football passion and fanatacism.
“The passion of the fans here is amazing – they are more passionate than in Spain and similar to fans in Italy.”
“They are like the fans in South America – of Boca Juniors, or a club like that.” “Newcastle are well known in Argentina for their fans.”
“It would be nice if the club was well known again for its football.”
True words from Fabricio, and it would be good if we started to become a much better side, certainly than we’ve been over the last 4 years, where we’ve been mediocre at best.
But before we can even think of strengthening the squad this summer, we must first of all stay in the Premier League, because if we get relegated we’ll need to offload quite a few of our better players, including Fabricio.
Let’s hope and pray it doesn’t come down to that in June.
That’s the real and terrible situation the club finds itself in right now, and we need some heroes at Newcastle United if are to get the 5 wins we need before the end of the season.
