Newcastle United: Fans laud Jack Colback as Jonjo Shelvey says he is the best trainer - Newcastle United

Some Newcastle United fans have been lauding Jack Colback, despite his Sunderland roots, as Jonjo Shelvey told In The Box (via ChronicleLive) that the central midfield player is near enough the Tyneside club’s best trainer.

As per the outlet, Colback has not played a competitive game for the Magpies in three years so perhaps this is a shocking claim. However, the 30-year old suffered a knee injury this year so maybe Shelvey has taken notice of his dedication to get back to full fitness.

Which of the following players was never signed by Kevin Keegan for the Toon?

The pair remain close and the 28-year old justified this by naming Colback in his dream 11. However, the latter was not part of Rafa Benitez’ plans upon the Toon’s return to the Premier League, but Shelvey insists that he still comes in and trains hard every day.

Indeed, Colback made 102 appearances for NUFC in all competitions between 2014 and 2017, scoring five goals and providing ten assists, according to Transfermarkt.
