Newcastle boss Pardew wants a more vocal Coloccini during his ban

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew has encouraged captain Fabricio Coloccini to be more vocal.

Pardew wants Coloccini to become more involved while he serves his ban.

He explained: "I might have a couple of experiments in terms of dealing with the team a little bit differently. One of them is obviously is to say to Colo that he needs to take a bit more of an active role in the next three games.

"He can express his opinion at half-time, my opinion won't be there. The players can offer John some assistance and make life a little bit easier for him, which I think, when you all buy into it, can work.

"Colo will find his own way. He is not the type of person to do some Churchillian speech, that is not his way. But he will find a way to offer John some assistance, I know he will."
