Having completed his move to NUFC Fabricio Coloccin spoke of his happiness to be at the club. The Argie, who has signed a 5 year deal with the club, definitely seemed up for the game against the Mancs. Fab said:

“There were a couple of clubs interested in me, one in Italy but more than anything I wanted to come here to play English football, especially after the success English clubs have had in Europe and I`m also really keen to learn English. If the manager decides to play me it`s not a big risk for the team.

“For me personally I don`t consider it a risk because I`ve got to play my first match somewhere, so why not Sunday? I`ve been warned about it and it`s going to be different to the way the game was in Spain but I`ve experienced that when I went form Argentina to Spain. The first few matches can be difficult but after that I soon got used to it.”
