Derek Llambias: “I have a lot of respect for Fabricio. He is a lovely man and has a good heart.
“He’s very proud of what he’s done at Newcastle as captain.
“I’m delighted he’s put aside his family problems for now.
“He’ll get us through this period and then we will see what happens in the future.
"But he’s a true, true professional. He’s been a great servant, there’s no question he’s one of our best players.”
