All the fuss over what Fab Coloccini said in the Argentine press a week or so ago, turns out to be nothing more than a regurgitated story that dates back to last January, when Coloccini wanted to return to the Argentine to be with his family.
Fabricio Coloccini - committed to Newcastle
Fabricio has recently returned to the side, and his experience is welcomed at the back for Newcastle, and in June he said he was committed to Newcastle this season, and Colo’s always been a man of his word.
This is what Colo said in the Shields Gazette today, in what is an exclusive from the local newspaper:
“It’s nothing – it’s old news,” “The press sometimes say things I said months ago, not now.” “I respect the fans.”
“When I go on to the pitch, I always give 100% for this shirt because they give me lots of love, and I have to say thank you.”
And there were stories circulated over the weekend about his wife and some of her tweets, but call us old-fashioned, but that seemed to pry too much into the personal challenges the Colo family are currently facing, and it seemed to us a little inappropriate that it was reported.
The Newcastle captain is facing some personal problems, no doubt, and the fact he has played so well this season is a statement of his professionalism.
But we also don’t know what happens in the summer, and maybe even Colo doesn’t even know that either.
All being well we’d like to see Colo see out his contract at Newcastle which runs through the summer of 2016.
