Duo set to reject NUFC – THREE managers keen but club are considering new approach – Report

According to the Telegraph’s Luke Edwards, both Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho have distanced themselves from the Newcastle United job – but several managers have made their interest known.

The piece states that Sean Dyche, David Moyes and Steve Bruce would all be keen on the job – with the latter seen as a ‘safe pair of hands’ by Mike Ashley – while Steven Gerard ‘could well come under consideration’ according to the Telegraph.

That said, Edwards claims that Newcastle are weighing up their options, stating club chiefs are reluctant to go for one of the “usual suspects” – and suggesting that a “younger, more dynamic coach” may be preferred to one with Premier League experience.

Claims that Mourinho and Wenger have ‘distanced themselves’ from the job after claims that we’d make a move is laughable really. Why on earth would either consider working under Ashley after seeing what Rafa Benitez has had to go through!



Talk that Bruce has friends in Ashley’s inner circle are worrying, with the Telegraph stating he’d find it ‘extremely difficult’ to turn the job down if offered the chance to return to Tyneside this summer. Mind you, bringing in Bruce would totally go against talk of bringing in a ‘young, dynamic manager’ with no Premier League experience.

Dyche and Moyes (at Everton) have proven themselves when it comes to doing well under a limited budget, but I would find the latter to be an incredibly underwhelming appointment based on his recent record.

As for Steve Gerard, when you consider his honesty and the way he spoke out about Benitez’s exit, I can NOT see a world where he takes over a club ran by Mike Ashley.

  3. The only way to kill off Ashley is boycott all games. Not fair on the players I know. But giving him no revenue is the only way to force his hand. He has took Newcastle United to lower than Sunday football with no ambition. Even Sunday football is played with both passion and ambition.
