Newcastle staff feel Coloccini should be dumped as skipper amid Krul bust-up

Fabricio Coloccini is set to be sacked as Newcastle United captain.

The Telegraph says there is a feeling within the Newcastle staff that the team would benefit from a change of captaincy for the last three games - against West Bromwich Albion, Queens Park Rangers and West Ham United - in which they desperately need to secure at least one victory.

Should Coloccini be stripped of the captaincy, then the midfielder Jack Colback would be among the favourites to take over as captain along with Tim Krul.

It's reported that Coloccini and Krul were involved in a heated row on the bus that took Newcastle from Leicester City's King Power Stadium to the airport for their flight back to the North East.

Krul was furious with the ­defending and lack of leadership from ­Coloccini.
