Newcastle's Steve Bruce: 'I won't walk away from the challenge'

Thu 16 September 2021 | 12:15

As he seeks to turn around Newcastle's dismal start to the season, Steve Bruce has stated that he would not be distracted from his true objective.

Newcastle United are without a win in five fixtures in all tournaments this season, and Bruce was the focus of disgruntled supporters during Saturday's 4-1 rout at

Manchester United. 

When asked if he had discussed his future with individuals in positions above him, he said in his pre-match news conference:

"No, but it's not all about me.

"I'm here to only do what I think is best for the club, and that is manage it as best I can and keep us moving along.

"It's for other people to answer that. I will continue to do my best - I'm never going to walk away from the challenge of it, that's for sure - so you're asking the wrong person."

Quizzed about the jeers at Old Trafford, Bruce continued:

"Look, it's always difficult. I'd be sick if I said I quite enjoyed it.

"It's difficult, but look, the frustration is, like any other

Premier League

club or any other Football League club, if you don't get results, then ultimately the manager, head coach, whatever I am, bears the brunt.

"That's what it is, so I have to accept that results haven't been good enough.

"What the disappointment was, was we played very, very well at a difficult place last week, as difficult as it was ever going to get and we played very, very well and didn't get anything out of the game, which is the frustrating thing."
