Fabricio Coloccini has been appointed as the new captain of Newcastle United.
Fabricio Coloccini – new Newcastle captain
The Argentine will replace the departed former captain Kevin Nolan, who is now at West Ham.
The news is being reported by the Evening Chronicle, and we speculated yesterday that Fabricio could get the job, because he is a solid pick at the center of Newcastle’s defense, whereas local lad Steven Taylor has a fight on his hands with Mike Williamson for a first team place.
Former Newcastle great Bobby Moncur had said that Coloccini would make a very good captain, because of the way he plays at the back, and he always gives it all he has.
We’re sure the Argentine will be a proud man today, and we look forward to his first interview as the new Newcastle captain.
We think this choice will be a popular one with Newcastle fans, and certainly Alan Pardew hasn’t wasted much time on the appointment.
But Coloccini may have to improve his English, and maybe even his French?
Congratulations to the Argentine, who is a popular player on Tyneside.
