Steve Bruce leaves Newcastle after a mutual consent

Wed 20 October 2021 | 10:24

The new owners of Newcastle intend to make big changes in this team.

Newcastle

have announced that they have part ways with manager Steve Bruce.

Newcastle have been transferred to Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund over the past few days, and many have predicted that the manager will soon be sacked.

The new owners of Newcastle are very wealthy and ambitious and are expected to spend a lot of money to improve the conditions of this team, including the selection of a first-class and well-known coach, and Steve Bruce after his thousandth appearance on the club's bench as head coach. It no longer has a place in their project.

Newcastle will face Crystal Palace in the ninth week of the English Premier League on Saturday, and Steve Bruce will not be on the team's bench in that game.

Bruce told Telegraph:

 “I really have to thank all the people who have worked alongside me, because I can be demanding and I can be hard work - especially when I was younger. When we get beat, I get very low, but when you are managing in the Premier League with Birmingham, Wigan, Hull, Sunderland you do get better at dealing with it. You have to.

“By the time I got to Newcastle, I thought I could handle everything thrown at me but it has been very, very tough. To never really be wanted, to feel that people wanted me to fail, to read people constantly saying I would fail, that I was useless, a fat waste of space, a stupid, tactically inept cabbage head or whatever. And it was from day one. 

“When we were doing ok results wise, it was ‘yeah but the style of football is rubbish’ or I was just ‘lucky.’ It was ridiculous and persistent, even when the results were good.

“The best one was to be told we were a relegation team in all but points…this was all in the first season. We finished 13th. It [the criticism and abuse] got even worse in the second year. We finished 12th, 17 points clear of the bottom three. 

“I tried to enjoy it and, you know, I did. I’ve always enjoyed the fight, proving people wrong, but that’s all it ever seemed to be. A fight, a battle. It does take its toll because even when you win a game, you don’t feel like you are winning over the supporters." 

Gream Jones will temporarily take over the club until the next manager is announced. Rumor has it that Newcastle will enter into negotiations with Antonio Conte, Lucien Favre, Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard and Brendan Rodgers, and it remains to be seen which of Bruce's successors will lead the ambitious project.
