It’s good news bad news from Alan Pardew at his press conference today – and the bad news is that Newcastle have sustained yet another injury in training – this time to Massadio Haidara – what goes on in the Newcastle training?
Fab Coloccini – in training this week – he’s back!
Massadio has sustained what seems a common a common injury at Newcastle – a hamstring strain – and he will now miss the vital game with West Ham at Upton Park on Saturday.
But the good news – very good news – is that captain Fabricio Coloccini will be back to captain the side.
Coloccini has trained for over a week now, and it seems his back injury is no longer bothering him, and maybe he can bring some much needed stability to the defense, which has looked hopeless since we were eliminated from the Europa League by Benfica.
Alan Pardew had this to say about his captain:
“Colo is fit and well”
That’s great news on Coloccini, and we’ll need him over the last three games of the season if we are to survive relegation.
We’ll bring you more of the press conference soon.
Comments very welcome.
