Well the truth finally comes out, and Joey Barton has today admitted that he just loves Fabricio Coloccini. 😀
Coloccini – you would think he had just scored a goal or something
Joey Barton has been a breath of fresh air since he returned to the Newcastle side following injury, and not only did he play some of his best football at Newcastle but seemed so upbeat about ….. well everything.
And the 27 year-old has admitted today that his favorite player at Newcastle is Argentine International Fabricio Coloccini, and if he was a Newcastle fan (does that mean he isn’t?), he’d have the name of Coloccini on the back of his shirt.
Joey Barton told Newcastle United TV today:
“There are a lot of candidates but I would have to go for Colo – I think he’s been outstanding,”
“He endured a hard start to life in England, but fair play to him, he stuck around and is reaping the reward for that now.”
“He’s great to watch at times and has unbelievable skill. He’s a top, top player and has been brilliant for us this season.”
“I love him! He’s my favorite player and if I was a fan it would definitely be his name on the back of my shirt!”
We were huge fans of Coloccini before he arrived on Tyneside, but after that relegation season, we had our doubts about the colorful player with the hair.
But last season Fabricio could hardly have performed better for the Tyneside club, and he also showed he is totally committed to the Newcastle cause, and even willing to play second tier football to bring the Newcastle club back from disaster.
The Argentine International now has the chance to show everybody next season that he is indeed Premiership class, and we expect him to do just that.
