Fabricio Coloccini has insisted that he wants to remain at St James' Park and get Newcastle back into Europe. Fabricio Coloccini: “This season we have had to battle and scrap for every point – it has been difficult but at last we have achieved our objective. “For me as a footballer, playing in the Premier League is where I want to be and why I signed for this great club. “To be playing in the best league in the world means so much. “Yes, I want to go to the World Cup finals with my country, but I know that if I want to be selected in the future, playing at the top level is where I need to be. “This club belongs in the top half of the Premier League and that’s where we aim to go now. “The fans want us to be in the Premier League next season. Now we have delivered that. “They are possibly the best fans in the world and I have a lot of affection for them. “To hear them sing my name is amazing. “It just makes you want to win every game for them, every tackle and get every pass right. “My aim is to stay at the club and help us climb up the Premier League next season, even if there are a going to be some tough battles ahead.”
