This year has not been the best for the manager of Newcastle United, Alan Pardew as he initiated the ongoing year by verbally abusing Manuel Pellegrini and more recently Pardew received a €60,000 fine from FA as well as another fine from Newcastle United of €100,000 after he head-butted the player of Hull City, David Meyler.
The head-but also saw Alan Pardew receiving a 3 match stadium ban and a touchline ban for 4 additional matches.
These recent sanctions has given added pressure to Alan Pardew and Newcastle United as the Premier League club is at the very bottom of the English League and now rumors are being circulated around linking Pardew with a move away from Newcastle United with other managers on the horizon of being selected as the new coach of the club.
Pardew is believed to be on the verge of being sacked with Steve Bruce and David Moyes being linked with the managerial position at St. James’ Park. The new coach will be decided after the owner of Newcastle United; Mike Ashley does indeed follow through with what all the rumors are pointing towards.
There has been another name that has been linked with taking up the managerial role of Newcastle and that is Fabricio Coloccini. Ever since Coloccini was signed by Newcastle United on August of 2008, he has established himself as a consistent and reliable defender which is why he captains the squad and is now even being taken into consideration to replace Alan Pardew.
Coloccini has recently been more of an influential player not only inside the playing grounds but outside of it as well as he is one of the leaders in the dressing rooms and the training sessions which are made at St. James Park and has turned into a surprising contender for the coaching role of the club which has been struggling so much in recent times.
