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.
