Fabricio Coloccini has rejected suggestions that Newcastle United’s poor form has been down to the lack of leadership in the team.
After the appointment of Steve McClaren in the summer, positivity was expected at St James’s Park. However, it took the club more than 10 games in order to get the first league win under the new manager.
There is an opportunity for Newcastle to build on this victory once again as the takeover Leicester City at home. Even though Leicester are flying high in the table, Coloccini and his team are confident of getting a result.
Ahead of the match, the Argentine defender rejected claims that the poor performance has been down to the lack of captains within the team. Coloccini claims that there is a lot of leadership within Newcastle and it is not necessarily exhibited through shouting on the pitch. The win against Bournemouth helped move Newcastle just one point above the relegation zone. Their situation remains critical and the club needs victories soon.
