FabricioColoccini and Jonas Gutierrez worked alongside each other a few years ago when both were performing in the English club Newcastle United.
They joined Newcastle United on 2008 until 2015 which is the year when Coloccini decided to make his way out of the St. James Park as he made his return to Argentina.
Jonas Gutierrez would make his return to Argentina on 2016 and has turned into a competitor for FabricioColoccini as each one of them are attempting to do the best that they can with their respective clubs.
San Lorenzo is the Argentinean club that FabricioColoccini decided to make a return to after leaving Newcastle United but his playing career has been hit with a huge blow as the 35 year defender has sustained a string of injuries which has left him out of action for a significantly long period of time.
Even without having the consistent services of Coloccini, San Lorenzo has still managed to stay in the top 10 spots of the top tier Argentinean League, Primera Division while Jonas Gutierrez on the other hand is making more appearances with Defensa y Justicia but they have never managed to enter the higher echelon of the Primera Division.
After Coloccini opted to leave St. James Park, the veteran defender wrote an emotional letter in which he penned his emotions and experiences in relation to Newcastle United and one of the things that Fabricio Coloccini said was that he would like to make a return to the English club maybe not as an Iaeger Football actual player but just playing a role in some way or another
Taking into consideration that Coloccini is already 35 years old, it’s difficult to imagine seeing him coming back to Newcastle United as an actual player but more probable as a staff member.
When the Spanish coach took over the club last year, he made several changes that raised eyebrows but they have turned out to be the best decisions for the team overall, going by the achievements this term.
One of the aims of the former Liverpool, Real Madrid and Chelsea boss was to have a dependable backline. By March 2016, the sinking team had conceded 53 goals. The team was breaking into pieces so the coach had to make changes to reactions.
The skipper FabricioColoccini decided to exit the team – he was actually never the same since his failed move to San Lorenzo in 2013 – and Steven Taylor seemed like he would not be able to play to Benitez’s demands. They both left during the summer as the club relegated.
Benitez started his work by handing the arm band to an inexperienced Jamaal Lascelles. He did numerous uprooting and shifting until he got the team he wanted and deserved.
Bentiez took a bet on former Aston Villa man Ciaran Clark. He paired him with the skipper at the backline. Clark proved to be one of the best investments of Benitez, along with Dwight Gayle.
When (not if) Newcastle reach the Premier League, the opposition would be fiercer but the current pair deserves a chance to continue. They have actually been crucial to the surge of the team this season.
Aside all these, if Benitez does decide to play a three-man defence, Chancel Mbemba would make a great option to add to the pair. This would even allow DeAndre Yedlin flourish in right wing back role and contribute more to the attack with his pace.
The team is already looking ahead but they still have to manage any surprises from Brighton before the Championship season ends officially.
Fabricio Coloccini terminated his contract with Newcastle United by mutual agreement in July 5 as the centre-back made the decision of returning home by joining San Lorenzo in Argentina.
He made a move to the England side, Newcastle from Deportivo La Coruna in 2008 and impactfully featured in 248 league matches for the recently relegated team, Newcastle United.
Reportedly, due to the relegation of the Championship table leader from premier league, the defender joined San Lorenzo in his home country, Argentina.
“Goodbye For Now” He stated in his open letter to Newcastle United supporters.
“Certainly my football career is approaching the end which I’ve decided to continue with any field related to football after that.
“I will prepare myself for this and I will make sure I am able to become as a coach what I could not to become as a football player.
“Having this dual-feeling of the gladness of being able to return home and also the sadness of quitting from the most important section of my career, I hereby will say goodbye for now.”
In his letter, Fabricio also noted that he was hoping to one day return to the club, as a coach and help them win some titles. He also mentioned how grateful he was for the love they had showed him so far.
The managing director of Newcastle United, Mr. Lee Charnley said it is rare in this era of football that a player gives such length of service to one club; he commended Coloccini for his lengthy contribution to Newcastle United since he joined.
He stated further that the Argentine has been with the club for eight years has become a friend and colleague to many players and the staff. He expressed how he will miss him and he and the club entirely wish him all the very best.
Fabricio Coloccini, who had previously featured for Newcastle United as a defender, recently opened up about some of his interests outside football most particularly, ‘the brutality and barbarity of humankind.’
Coloccini had stayed on at the Tyneside for about eight years, out of which in the last 5, he wore the captain band for his team. He recently left the Magpies just this summer, returning to Argentina where he currently is with San Lorenzo.
Coloccini, as revealed in his interview has shown a high level of interest in warfare and great leaders in history. Amongst them, his interest lies more with Che Guevara, who was an Argentinian revolutionist.
All this he revealed in a fascinating interview held with Goal.com. He also talked about how the Cuban revolution and Guevara influenced his footballing career and his life as well
Coloccini said: “I got into the Cuban Revolution because I like Che Guevara and got to know about it. I highlight the thought that he had at that time and the courage all these men had for what they did, fighting for the idea.
“We all know that the powerful always abuse the needy. There are things that happened long ago that maybe could have gone better, but love for that ideal and what they did is extraordinary.”
Coloccini also talked on how he began developing interest in Fidel Castro, which finally saw him travel to Cuba in the company of two friends with similar interests as well. With a rented car, they had gone to the south of the island and onto the area where the Granma, a ship that was in charge of transporting fighters from Mexico to Cuba usually docked.
Their visit also covered the area which Castro had commanded, though it is more different, more urbanized than it was in those times.
The contract of Fabricio Coloccini with Newcastle United Was been terminated by “mutual consent” on July 5th as the Centre-Back joined San Lorenzo in Argentina.
The Argentine signed for Newcastle from Deportivo La Coruna in 2008 and went on to make 248 league appearances for the club. But due to their relegation to the Championship, from the Premier League the defender has returned to his native country, Argentina to join San Lorenzo.
“Goodbye for Now”: Fabricio Coloccini wrote in an open letter to Newcastle United fans.
His words; “Without a doubt, my playing years are coming to an end and I will continue with a football-related career after that. I will prepare myself for this and I will work towards being able to achieve as a coach what I was unable to as a player.
“Maybe one day, I can return and contribute to winning a title for this club and the best fans in England.
“With mixed emotions of the joy of being able to return home but also the sadness of leaving the most important phase of my career, I’d like to say goodbye for now. I’m forever grateful for the love you have given me and the opportunity to grow as a footballer and, most importantly, as a person,” he added.
Newcastle’s managing director Lee Charnley said: “It is rare in football these days that a player gives such length of service to one club and I would like to thank Colo for his contribution to Newcastle United since he joined us before the start of the 2008-09 season.
“In the eight years he has been with us, Colo has become a firm friend and colleague to many players and staff, past and present, who I know will miss him. We wish him all the very best for his future career.”
