Fab Coloccini has just signed a new four and a half year deal to stay at Newcastle though the summer of 2016.
Fab Coloccini – wants to play Champions League with Newcastle
And the Newcastle captain has been interviewed on nufcTV today, and Coloccini explained his ambition has always been to compete in Europe in the Champions League with Newcastle United:
“When I came here in the first year, in my first interview I said I wanted to play in the Champions League with Newcastle United,” “Maybe people thought I was crazy, but that is my dreams.”
“We are in a good way, and if we keep going like this – hard working and with the Club going this way – then it is maybe possible.” “I don’t know if it will be next year or a couple of years, but we can be fighting with the top teams.”
“It is an important day because I wanted to sign here and the Club wanted me to stay, so I am very happy,” “A lot of things made me want to sign here and I can stay for a long time, so it is going to be important for me and for my career.”
“If I can finish this contract then I am going to have a lot of years at Newcastle United and that is massively important for me with such a big team.”
The former Deportivo La Coruna and AC Milan center-back is a firm favorite with the fans, and already a bit of a folk hero on Tyneside, and he certainly has been in top form for Newcastle this season.
The negotiations have been going on with Colo for a couple of months, and Newcastle fans will be delighted that he has signed his new deal on Tyneside, and will now be at Newcastle with his Argentine colleague Jonas Gutierrez until the summer of 2016.
And since Fabricio is the highest paid player at the club, Newcastle must be able to shell out the money when they have to – to keep their top players at the club.
This is good news for Newcastle, the day before the derby game with Sunderland – and now we have to win the game tomorrow.
