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.
