Coloccini injury woe for Newcastle

Newcastle skipper Fabricio Coloccini faces the threat of being on the sidelines for the rest for the season after picking up a serious injury.

Coloccini has broken two bones in his back after landing awkwardly during Newcastle 4-2 win over Southampton in February. The Argentina international has returned to his home country for a week to be assessed by a medical staff from national association, but Newcastle boss Alan Pardew revealed the defender will be out for a lengthy period of time.

He said: Colo has gone back to Argentina. There’s no treatment he can have - he’s broken two of the bones in his back. We think it’s going to be anything between three and seven weeks. He’s gone back for a week.”
