Former Newcastle United defender Fabricio Coloccini has revealed that he would so much cherish the idea of being called back to the Argentina national team after a long time out of the setup. The former Premier League defender now plays for Argentine Primera Division side Aldosivi. After beginning his career in his home country with Boca Juniors, one of Argentina’s best club teams, he started to attract interest from a number of clubs across Europe, including Italian Serie A giants AC Milan. He sealed a transfer to the San Siro from Boca Juniors but it was not a fairytale spell for him in Italy and was loaned to four different clubs afterward.
He recently played for Newcastle in the English Premier League but he was yet again unlucky and could not replicate the form that saw him gain a lot of media attention at Boca Juniors. He could not cope with the intensity and the rush of the English League and after also battling against a lack of form and inconsistency, there was very little or nothing he could do to convince the Newcastle bosses that he still had what it takes to put his career back on track and from there it was agreed by mutual consent that the best decision would be to leave St James’ Park.
An exit from Newcastle saw him receive a fresh contract offer from Aldosivi which he gladly accepted as he believes that he still had some footballing ability left in him and wanted to prove that he could still be of good use to the club. He was handed the number 6 jersey at the club and he has since been doing his best to make sure that he at keadts maintains a regular starting role. He has been able to make up to 10 appearances in the league this season but insists that he would love to return to the Argentina national team in the near future.
