Fabricio Coloccini: "I will never cut off my hair.
"There was a time when I went to AC Milan and the older players like Costacurta and Maldini said: 'You must cut your hair. It looks stupid. You must cut it.'
"I was so fed up of everybody's comments I ended up having it cut. Never again.
"Here at Newcastle, some of the players say: 'Bad hair! Bad hair!' But I don't care what they say."
"The passion of the fans here is amazing - they are more passionate than in Spain and similar to fans in Italy.
"They are like the fans in South America - of Boca Juniors, or a club like that.
"Newcastle are well known in Argentina for their fans.
"It would be nice if the club was well known again for its football."
