Bruce had an hour-long meeting with the new owners of the Magpies.
Luke Edwards has given a major update on the future of Newcastle manager Steve Bruce at St. James’ Park. Telegraph journalist Luke Edwards has admitted that he is expecting the Newcastle boss to be sacked before Newcastle’s Premier League clash with Tottenham.
The English journalist has revealed that Bruce had an hour-long meeting with the new owners of the Magpies and they thanked him for the job he had done.
He told BBC 5 Live Sport: “I do think Steve Bruce will be gone. I think he’s going to go before the Tottenham game. My understanding is that they may well have thanked him today for keeping them in the Premier League so that this takeover could happen.”
“I think we’ll find out in the next 24 to 48 hours, Steve Bruce’s future, and I wouldn’t expect him to be in the dugout against Tottenham.”
Newcastle are 19th in the Premier League standings and winless after seven games. Fans would have no issues if owners of the club sack 60-year-old manager.
A recent survey, by the Newcastle United Supporters Trust, found that 94.3% of the fans wanted Bruce to be axed, with 95.3% stating that they believe the club will be relegated this season.
