In news that has our Newcastle United fans sighing into their pints, Goal.com have claimed that their want away skipper is still yet to commit his future to the club.
Much had been made of Coloccini and his desire to leave the club for personal reasons in the transfer window just gone by and the defender has admitted nothing has really changed and he is still uncertain over where his future will lie. Of course it is not exactly like Newcastle can afford to lose their inspirational defender, and their season is not exactly going to plan.
Coloccini himself claimed that he is currently ‘happy’ at the club yet noted that: “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.”
Whilst this may seem quite like the defender could be persuaded to stay at the club, he followed up this statement by claiming that: “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.”
The Magpies are of course set to fight it out for a place in the next round of the Europa league tonight away to Metalist Kharkiv and will be relying on their skipper to help inspire the team to build on their goalless draw in the first leg and get through a tough away trip to the Ukraine.
Do you think Coloccini can be persuaded to stay? Let us know your thoughts below.
