Steve Bruce Set to Stay at Newcastle
Rumours of His Sacking After Sheffield United Game
Bruce, who has managed eleven teams including the Toon during his time as a manager, was believed to be close to the exit door at the club.
Bruce has been with Newcastle since 2019, having taken over at the club when Rafael Benitez left.
Despite leading the club to a 13th-placed finish in his first season and steering the club clear of the relegation places, he has since come under fire as boss of the side.
Winless in Last Five Premier League Games
Newcastle remain clear of relegation this season, as they are currently sat in 15th-place and are eight points clear of Fulham and the relegation places. However, they have not won any of their last five Premier League games and will not want to be dragged any closer to relegation.
Bruce has a lot of experience in Football League management, most recently being in charge at Sheffield Wednesday before his Newcastle stint and keeping them clear of relegation too.
Mike Ashley Happy With Steve Bruce as Newcastle Boss
However, it appears Toon fans are starting to turn on the boss and are ready to see him depart the club.
It seems as though he will be staying with Newcastle for the time being. Owner Mike Ashley is believed to be happy to keep Bruce at the club and does not want to have to search for a new boss to replace the manager.
It means that despite the club’s current results in the Premier League and all of the fan unhappiness, he is likely to stay at Newcastle for now.
