Pardew sees returning Coloccini as Newcastle saviour

Newcastle boss Alan Pardew is desperate to have skipper Fabricio Coloccini back to provide some much-needed leadership on the pitch.

"I think Colo's important this week, no disrespect to the two centre-halves who played against Liverpool," Pardew told the Chronicle.

"I think his leadership is important. Hopefully, he comes through this week, and we can get him out on the pitch with the armband on."
