index 0

Newcastle fans on the 22nd of March went on Twitter to appreciate one of their greatest defender in the Premier League in Fabricio Coloccini. Signed from Spanish side Deportivo La Coruna in 2008 the defender had endured lean spells at AC Milan Atletico Madrid and Villareal.

At Newcastle, the bushy-haired Argentine would wow the Magpies for the next eight years of his stay. Blessed with good speed and excellent in the air Coloccini was the rock behind the fifth-placed finish alongside Steve Taylor in the early part of Alan Pardew’s tenure.
