Coloccini Saga Brushed Under The Carpet

Coloccini Saga Brushed Under The Carpet

Back in January, we got confirmation that some of the rumours regarding our captain Fabricio Coloccini, were true.

Whilst im not gonna mention what some of the rumours were, it was obvious that the Argentinian rock was unhappy with things going on in his life and we got developments on a daily basis which accumulated in a decision for Colo to stay.

The realists amongst us knew that the decision was forced on him because he is under contract and the club wont let him leave for nowt.

Anyway, this saga will be resurrected no doubt in the Summer but Colo said a few words today which don't really shed any new light on his future by stating.

"The future? Yes. I am happy to play now. When the situation was finished in January I said to the club that we can turn the page. We have moved on.

"I`m only focusing on the club now.

'Next season, I don`t know. I just want to be focused on the Premier League and the Europa League this season."


he then added.

"It will be a big test for us. The situation - the weather, the crowd, the team we`re playing - it will be a different kind of challenge, but if you want to go to the final this is the Europa League. It is tough.

"There are many tests ahead but I think we have got a squad which is strong enough to cope with what is in front of us, one that can go on to better things.

"Yes, of course, all of us would love to go to the final and win it, but we can only afford to take things step by step for now.

"I know that it`s a long time, too long a time, since this club won anything. Newcastle have won nothing for so many years and that is wrong. We want to put that right and get our names in the history books. But we are too far away to talk of that now."


Hopefully Colo has got his personal problems in check now but if not, what a way to go if he could be the first NUFC captain to lift a trophy for 44 years in Amsterdam in May.
