Newcastle to dump Coloccini as club captain

Fabricio Coloccini will lose the Newcastle United captaincy this summer.

The Daily Mail says Newcastle are set to strip Coloccini of the captaincy this summer and give the armband to Daryl Janmaat, should he remain at the club.

Former Argentina defender Coloccini has been skipper since 2011 but head coach John Carver says the club will review that position at the end of the season.

The Magpies have repeatedly been let down by those appointed to lead the team this year and that has infuriated coaching staff.

Carver said: "The captaincy is something that has to be addressed by the football club.

"We need to give the captaincy to somebody who is responsible, who is a leader. The players will follow a leader, and they have to have discipline on and off the pitch."
