Fabricio Coloccini was interviewed last week on an Argentine web-site, and in his comments he said he would like to leave Newcastle as soon as possible, once next summer rolls around.
Fabricio Coloccini – still wants to leave Newcastle
This is what Colo had said on the Argentine web-site Ole last week:
“We did everything possible to return to Argentina, but obviously Newcastle have the final say,” “They are the club that invested in me… and you have to respect that. The truth is I don’t want to get my hopes up. Hopefully it will be as soon as possible.”
And Alan Pardew seems not to have seen these reports, and admitted that he was unaware of Colo’s quotes coming out of Argentina.
This is what Alan Pardew had to say, once he was made aware of the reports:
“I wasn’t aware of that, if I am honest.” “But it’s difficult when players go home and they are interviewed. You never know if there is any truth in it. I haven’t spoken to Colo about that.”
It would not be surprising if Alan Pardew doesn’t read the reports on Newcastle – maybe you need to be a masochist to do that – given the criticism the Newcastle manager regularly receives.
It’s one way for him to try to keep his sanity, in what is a very tough job for any manager.
But we do expect Colo to keep his promise, that he will remain on Tyneside this season, and play the full season for Newcastle.
But what happens come the summer who knows – and we could even see Colo leave Newcastle United after six years at the club.
