According to an ‘exclusive’ from the Telegraph’s Luke Edwards, Steve Bruce is fearing for his job amid the takeover rumours, and does not expect to be part of the club’s long-term vision.
This comes on the back of Sky Sports reporting earlier on Monday that Bruce will be kept on until the end of the season at least, with the owners reviewing the situation from the.
How Bruce is going to convince the new owners he is the right man for the job with the current squad is another thing, but The Telegraph believe that he already knows that his days are numbered at St James’ Park.
The piece also claims that our gaffer has reached out to Ashley for some clarity on the situation, but his pleas have all fallen on deaf ears – something that is totally disrespectful on the owners behalf.
No matter your feelings on him as a manager, for him to be left in the dark is bang out of order, but Bruce is now quickly learning what the likes of Keegan and Rafa has had to deal with before him!
The man has done a solid job. In all honesty, he has done exactly what was asked of him when brought to the club, to keep the side in the Premier League.
The least he deserves back is some clarity on his job.
