Geordie legend Chris Waddle is impressed by Newcastle United captain Fabricio Coloccini.

Waddle thinks that the skipper Coloccini will be a key component in the charge for Europe.

"He knows how to play now.

"At first he looked like a fish out of water to be honest.

"But he's settled now and knows the game - he'll be huge in the run-in," he told the Evening Chronicle.
