Coloccini Popular Among The Players – Sign Him Up Too!

Coloccini, like Jonas Gutierrez last Monday had only two years left on his contract.

Fabricio Coloccini – the popular Newcastle captain

And of course Jonas has fixed that when he was offered a two year extension and singed along the dotted line yesterday to the pleasant surprise of most of us.

But  Coloccini will be 30 in January, and he’s said to be on wages of around £75K/week, although Lee Ryder of the Evening Chronicle puts that figure at  £90K/week today. That’s a lot of money.

Colo will never get his deal extended for that kind of money,  and he will be just seven months short of his 32nd birthday when his current deals runs out in June, 2013,  so maybe Newcastle could offer him a one year extension, or even a two year deal at lower wages.

Nobody would be happier to stay on Tyneside than the Newcastle captain, and this is what his Argentine pal Jonas Gutierrez told the Newcastle press today:

“Colo and I love life at Newcastle and want to spend our best years here.” “Since Newcastle returned to the Premier League, Colo has been in great form.”

“This wasn’t a surprise for me, because I played against him many times in La Liga when he was at Depor and I was at Real Mallorca.”

“He is a very important player for us. He is doing really well as captain and he has a big experience of playing in first-class matches.”

“Colo is a really good guy, and I think all of the players like him.” “They speak highly of him and he can tell them about all of the experience he has.”

We had put out that we thought both Coloccini and Gutierrez would be sold next summer, so Newcastle could get something for them before their contracts ran out in 2013, but that hasn’t happened – what – we were wrong again?


That was especially true for Gutierrez, who was thought to be very disappointed when his Spanish pal Jose Enrique left for Liverpool in August, to join a top four aside.

Where are Liverpool and Newcastle in the league right now?

Both Jonas and Colo have done great at Newcastle and they have turned out to be loyal players for the club and good buys, and whom would have thought in the summer of 2009, following relegation, that Colo would be Newcastle captain with the team in 4th place in the Premier League just over a short two years later –  not too many.

Newcastle did the right thing yesterday by signing Jonas to a contract extension, and now we’d just love to see them do the same thing with the popular Newcastle captain.

And you can bet your life that Newcastle manager Alan Pardew is trying to get the board do that right now.

What do you think?

Let us know – comments welcome.

    I reckon Colo’s contract will be wrapped up before the Spurs match. There’s a convenient 2 week window, in which they’ll be striving to get things sorted, is my guess.

    the tevez story makes me laugh this is what happens when you pay people extraordinary amounts of money to come to club that they dont want to play for they are going to have problems keeping players happy cos they are signing big name players for a small club all the players coming in think they are better than the club cos they have won almost everything and the club has won nothing no matter what they do with their money they cannot buy history and will always be in the shadows of their scum neighbours they wont like it but thats just the way it will always be

    I wish they’d keep their masks down. As a former paintball marshal I know only too well how badly you can get injured.

    Just a word in favour of reality, does Lee Rider say Collo is on £90,00 a week! Think aout this all you out there who slave away for two or three hundred a week, and think of the even higher earners. Seriously. isn’t it absolutely barmy.
    Denis Law once trembled asking Mat Busby for a tenner a week raise – yes £10. Wages will ruin football unless attitudes change.
