It seems like Fabricio Coloccini has no regrets about his decision to remain on Tyneside following relegation from the Premier League last season.
Fabricio Coloccini – glad he stayed at Newcastle
We have to give Fabricio credit, because he came out more than once in the summer, and said he wanted to stay at Newcastle and help the side get promotion back to the Premiership.
And he’s been one of our standout players this season and we’ve achieved promotion – easily as it turns out being 21 points clear of 3rd placed Nottingham Forest – and at the very first attempt.
And the Argentine has become a folk-hero on Tyneside, after his excellent play and his obvious love of the Newcastle fans, the Newcastle club and the City.
Fabricio said today:
“We have celebrated after we won the last game. I’m very happy for the fans because they deserve it, being back in the Premier League.”
“It certainly makes me feel like it was the right decision staying at Newcastle. I knew it always was. I took the decision because I like Newcastle and I like the club. I am happy here in the city.”
Now we have to see how the lads fare next season, but at least there is now significant team spirit in the dressing room, and that should help us get some points, when things are touch and go in some of our games next season.
