Great news coming in from Sky Sports news and BBC Sports that Fabricio Coloccini will stay at Newcastle at least until the summer.
Fabrico Coloccini – staying on Tyneside
Of course Fabricio had little choice after the club let him know yesterday that if he went AWOL they would pursue him in the courts - so it’s as good as an outcome as we could have hoped for, but whether he will stay past the summer we don’t know.
This is what a relieved Alan Pardew had to say about the situation:
“Coloccini is going to stay with us and will remain as captain, which is fantastic news for us.” “We have managed to persuade him that, as much as his family, we need him. He has shown fantastic loyalty to come and play and see us through to the summer at the very least.”
Those are the exact right words from the manager so the team spirit is kept high in the squad, and we can start getting some good results – and the sooner the better.
And it’s a good decision to keep Colo as captain, so to keep things steady and settled, as the new players get acclimatized (quickly) to things on Tyneside.
It’s to Newcastle credit that they have not divulged any details of Fab’s personal situation – although the rumors have been rife about what if could be – most being too preposterous to be true – and Colo is still extremely popular with Newcastle fans and he’s done a great job for the club in the almost five years he has spent at Newcastle.
And the club captain will continue to get great support from the fans – as he shows his professionalism and starts to help Newcastle get away from the relegation zone – over the next couple of months or so.
This is more great news for Newcastle this week.
Howay The Lads!!
