Coloccini So Pleased He Stayed At Newcastle United

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.

Comments welcome.

    Ha ha not a hope nightfa11!!!

    Pleased for Colo that this season has gone so well for him after what was a pretty poor first season (wasnt called colo the clown for nowt!) Any player with over 30 Argentina Caps and who was a mainstay of a european playing Depor side has to have talent and that has shone through this year, lets all hope he continues it next year with 08/09 being a blip & year of getting used to the English Game.

    Would love to see himn go to the WC.

    it could be argued that the high earners remained with us for exactly that reason, but in the case of those who did stay they have earned every penny and justified their money – the effort and application of colo , guittierez and enrique have made a mockery of the guts and drive of the ones who legged it. Duff aside, Owen, Martins and Beye have’nt actually had a productive season eh?

    Although there is no doubt he has had a cracking season the standard of players he is up against has to be taken into consideration, I can’t but help think back to last season when he was physically dominated in many games by forwards who wouldn’t exactly be classed as brutes, I’m praying he proves me wrong but I still think we need a strong centre defender who’s experienced at playing in the Premier League, as for his loyalty who after the aforementioned season would be able to offer him any where near the alleged £68000 a week wages that might of played a bit of a part in him staying.
