Coloccini Ahead Of Schedule – Thanks To Argentine Medics


Alan Pardew has revealed today that Fabricio Coloccini has been treated by the Argentine medics of their National side, after he picked up the hamstring injury during the International break while training with the squad, and it looks like they’ve done a really good job, and Fab is returning ahead of schedule.

Fabricio Coloccini – good recovery from hamstring injury

Alan Pardew seemed pleased that his captain had been able to return so quickly, after a second spell out already this season with hamstring problems.

This is what the Newcastle manager said in the local press today:

“He has been with his national team medics.” “He’s stayed in the warmth which is obviously better for a hamstring.” “And he’s worked with the Argentina national team.”

“They are focused on the injury as it was done with them.” “I was happy for them to do that.” “I am really pleased how he has come back. He’s ahead of schedule.”

“Sometimes when you get injured you have to do what’s right for the individual player and it looks like we got that right with Colo.” “I know him and he’s fine. He’s trained and he’ll come back stronger.”

Fabricio recently signed a contract to keep his at Newcastle through 2016, and he’s become a great signing for Newcastle, and an excellent player at the back for the side, with his cool confident performances.

Fab cost about £10.4M from Deportivo in the summer of 2008, but he’s turned out to be a great signing, after a first season when he showed indifferent form, and we were amazingly relegated.

For the record Fabricio has now appeared 157 times for the Magpies with 5 goals, and he’s been our captain since July of last year, after Kevin Nolan left for pastures anew at West Ham United.

It’s great to have Fabricio back in the side tomorrow night at Old Trafford.

    When Colo has retired and he becomes a NUFC legend all will be revealed as to just how loyal to this club he has been. Large percentage of the reason why the team spirit is so good.

    Jesper…It’s not ignoring you, they’re just in awe of you. Understandable.

    Ibiza – Colo takes his Captaincy very seriously, so much so it has been probably the chief reason he has staked his career with us on it. I don’t want to go down the ITK route but he has a story and it is a good one, I think when he retires the details of his time with us will be pleasantly surprising reading.

    I read somewhere that he funds an orphanage in Argentina. Proves not all players are selfish moneygrabbers

    Tsunki…Stop fence sitting. Stake your claim as an ITK….we currently have a shortage of them and you have my backing (and we all know that stands for a lot 🙂 )!

    Jesper…Get a move on mate….Old Trafford discussion starting and you’re getting left behind.

    Colo- great player, great captain and a great bloke.
    Who says spending a decent (expensive) amount of money on a player is a waste of time? He will become a Toon legend by the time he laces his last boots for us.
    By the way, can he bring some of those Argentinian physios back with him?
