Coloccini Seen At San Lorenzo Game – So What?

We see there were at least a couple of newspapers that reported on Fabricio Coloccini recovering from his back injury in Buenos Aries, and attending a San Lorenzo Reserve team game recently.

Fabricio Coloccini at San Lorenzo game – big deal

Our immediate reaction to the stories was so what?

That’s because Fabricio is undergoing no special treatment for his back injury, which simply needs time to heal – and the Newcastle captain could be back for the first of our two Benfica ties in the quarter-finals of the Europa League, and he is expected to return to Newcastle next week.

And of course the papers linked him again with moving to San Lorenzo in the summer, but the truth is that’s where he will probably end up – and those inside Newcastle may decide (and may have already decided) that’s the best option in the summer, to solve Colo’s current family problem.

So as long as Colo doesn’t try a back somersault if San Lorenzo score – he’s OK rehabilitating back in Buenos Aries, and  attending some football games there.

After all Pope Francis is also a keen San Lorenzo supporter – but he wasn’t spotted at the game – he’s a little too busy in Rome these days.

Hopefully Colo will be playing again for Newcastle in a couple of weeks.

    mm, bit irritating that he’s simply got a long holiday but i suppose this is just that thing on football manager where you let an unsettled player go back to their own country for a month!

    That bad back is a bunch of arse.

    The unscrupulous philanderer is on “compassionate leave” when he only has himself to blame as far as I can tell.

    Sort it out and get back to work, will ya, for crying out loud.

    Exactly his bad back is simply to give him a few weeks back in buenos aires, which is no good for us. Not long to go before king colos newcastle career is over forever 🙁

    When Collo got his back injury it was said at the time because of the nature of the injury that he would be unable to train, now we’ve got bloggers coming on here stating that he is not injured at all but was just using it as an excuse to get back to Argentina, that fact that he was spotted watching a match at home doesn’t surprise me he is afterall a footballer, another instance of the press causing mischief,

    It was that overhead kick clearance from the byline that did for him, he was hobbling around afterwards and was taken off soon after. Anyone claiming that it’s a hoax really needs to stop reading so many tabloid newspapers. Players often go back to their home countries when rehabilitating!
