Pardew hopes that Coloccini is judged on just football as he looks to move on from his disrupted season.
The United boss said: “I was a little bit disappointed with some of the Press about that.
“It was a personal situation. It is difficult for that to play out in the Press as it did.
“It was uncomfortable for him and for me. I still won’t talk about it because it is not fair on Colo.”
