Newcastle fans react on Twitter to Fabricio Coloccini’s performance against Southampton

Fabricio Coloccini

Newcastle United played out a 2-2 draw with Southampton at St. James’ Park in the Premier League on Sunday.

Newcastle United fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to give their reaction to Fabricio Coloccini’s performance against Southampton on Sunday afternoon.

The Argentina international defender did not feature in any pre-season game for the Magpies due to an Achilles problem, but he started the Premier League match at St. James’ Park.

The centre-back played the entire 90 minutes, as the entertaining match finished in a 2-2 draw.

Newcastle fans, though, were far from impressed with the shift put in by the 33-year-old, who has been on the books of the Premier League outfit since 2008.

The former Deportivo La Coruna star struggled last season, as the Magpies almost got relegated from the Premier League to the Championship.

Coloccini did not look very comfortable against the Saints on Sunday, often looking slow in reading the game and lacking communication.

Following the match, Newcastle fans took to Twitter to have their say on the performance of Coloccini against Southampton and urged the club to sign a replacement for him this month.
