Steve Bruce is set to continue to be in charge of Newcastle United for the club’s first match Saudi Arabia-led era..
Bruce expected to be fired this week, but when Tottenham visited St. James’s Park on Sunday, he was ready to preside over the 1,000th match as club manager. It’s almost certain that it was his last substantive act in Newcastle before he was fired, but the owner is still identifying replacements and is 60 years old lining up for a £ 7 million payoff. Decided to deserve the dignified end of his tenure.
Newcastle managers were widely expected to be fired on Thursday, but the club announced at lunchtime that Bruce would stand in front of the virtual media conference on Friday.
Amanda Staveley, the director of Newcastle on a daily basis, met for the first time when Bruce spent 90 minutes. Visit to the training ground on Monday.
It was understood that Stabley and her husband, Murdad Godussi, were impressed with his attitude when he expressed his thoughts on the second team in the Premier League without a win.
Desperately unpopular with Newcastle fans could prove unwelcome guests at the party as 52,000 spectators celebrate the controversial £ 300m acquisition on Sunday, but limited Bruce may be allowed to keep the team at the top tier of the last two seasons – ending his tenure with a relatively happy note.
Newcastle owners consider alternatives as Brendan Rodgers reveals he’s not leaving Leicester and Rafael Benitez isn’t ready to break his contract at Everton and return emotionally to St. James’ Park. And Bruce’s continued presence is spending time on them.
The board’s candidate list includes former Nice and Borussia Dortmund coach Lucien Favre and former Chelsea coach Frank Lampard. Lampard, however, is not considered a favorite of Benitez’s lined posts until he joined Everton this summer.
Bruce, who took over Benitez in July 2019, agreed to a very generous retirement package as former Newcastle owner Mike Ashley was aggressively trying to sell the club. Negotiations regarding the exact amount of compensation he will receive may be finalized in the following cases: Yasir Al-Rumayan, Governor of PIFThe Saudi Arabian investment fund, which holds a majority stake in Newcastle, will arrive in the United Kingdom before the Tottenham match.
