'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Is Coloccini Here In Mind As Well As Body?

It's no secret that Fabricio Coloccini wants to leave.

It's also no secret that it's for personal reasons.

Now rather than speculate on the real reason why he wants away, we have to examine where we stand at present with the news that a proposed move to his local club, San Lorenzo has fallen through.

Firstly Id like to state that it's a disgrace that a player under contract can be blatantly tapped up through various media sources and it may have unsettled him further.

A major coincidence that the local club back home come in with an offer on the back of 'personal reasons'. He wasn't homesick as he's been here a few years.

If his wife was sick then surely we have adequate facilities in this country to get her well looked after but as much as we want to avoid the rumours, it's looking more likely that there is some truth in it with Colo himself in reality unable to get out of his final three years of his contract, so a dilemma will be going though his head.

Personally, his mind will be back home if his family are back there and would echo the recent statement by Alan Pardew of letting his game blank out any bad thoughts. His football doing the healing.

If he stays then there's a big crossroads approaching in the Summer, where a 3 month break may not be enough to get his life back on track, so either way, I think his time is up.
