Spiderman has revealed that fellow countryman Coloccini was one of his most feared opponents during their time playing in La Liga.

Gutierrez: "I have played with him for Argentina and against him when I was at Real Mallorca and he played for Depor.

"He is respected in Argentina and in La Liga.

"He's a very good player and now it's good that he is to become a Newcastle player.

"I will be happy to be on his side now and not playing against him as he is one of the toughest opponents I have faced.

"Fabricio will be a very good signing for us, very good indeed.

"Valencia was a massive result for us.

"Away teams are going to feel that pressure when they come to St James's Park this season - we will keep going forward.

"We must stay in a good condition to do that and work hard in training.

"There are often late goals in football these days, so it is important we continue."
