Newcastle to be without Coloccini for up to six weeks

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew will have to contend with the loss of captain Fabricio Coloccini to a knee injury that could keep the captain out of action for up to six weeks, Sky Sports has reported.

Coloccini did not complete the Magpies’ 1-0 loss to West Bromwich Albion on New Year’s Day, forced off after just over an hour due to the problem. He was replaced by Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa. Coloccini’s absence adds to the defensive headache facing Pardew, who will also be without right-back Mathieu Debuchy after the France international was sent off for a two-footed tackle minutes before Coloccini was withdrawn.


Not only do we lose Debuchy but Colo also looks to have done something to his knee,” Pardew said after the 1-0 defeat. “It could be four to six weeks,” the manager confirmed.


Newcastle were condemned to the loss at the Hawthorns through Saido Berahino’s 87th minute penalty, awarded after goalkeeper Tim Krul brought down Matej Vydra. It was Newcastle’s second straight defeat after they ended 2013 with a home loss to league leaders Arsenal, with Pardew’s side eighth in the table.
