Coloccini completely loses his cool for Newcastle in pre-season friendly…
Fabricio Coloccini, Newcastle’s 31-year-old Argentinian captain, was shockingly sent off in the 37th minute off a 1-1 draw with Pacos Ferreira.
Having clearly lost his temper completely, Coloccini is seen here ringing the neck of young Portuguese defender Rui Caetano.
Alan Pardew claimed that players were frustrated at the referee letting tackles go unpunished, but there can be no excuse for his captain’s actions – especially in a pre-season friendly.
