FABRICIO Coloccini is out of Newcastle United’s game against Liverpool.
The club’s captain has a groin injury, and won’t be involved at St James’s Park on Saturday.
Coloccini suffered the problem while on international duty with Argentina.
United manager Alan Pardew said: “Fabricio’s got an injury – he won’t feature this weekend.
“As to how long he’s missing, we’ll have to see.
“He has a groin injury. We’ll have to see how it repairs.”
Meanwhile, winger Jonas Gutierrez is in Argentina because of a “personal issue”, and won’t feature against Liverpool.
