Amanda Staveley’s top target now ‘interested’ in NUFC job after talks – The Telegraph

The Telegraph are reporting that Paulo Fonseca has the support of Newcastle United shareholder Amanda Staveley.

Fonseca, 48, is currently the bookies favourite to replace Steve Bruce, who left the club by ‘mutual consent’ earlier today.

Now, The Telegraph have revealed that he is Staveley’s preferred choice, claiming he was approached by the new owners over the summer and has since held talks about taking the job on Tyneside.

With discussions ‘reopened’, the report states that the former Roma boss is interested in becoming the new manager of Newcastle United, having just missed out on a Premier League job with Spurs over the summer.

That said, the piece claims that Frank Lampard, Steven Gerrard and Eddie Howe are also ‘under consideration’, with the club pursuing all options before a final decision will be made by the PIF’s Yasir Al-Rumayyan – NUFC’s non-executive chairman.

For now, Graeme Jones will take charge of Saturday’s trip to Crystal Palace on an ‘interim’ basis, with The Telegraph also stating that the new owners will hold talks with candidates for the sporting director post ‘this week.’

  1. Seen some negative comments about this guy cause he is currently “out of a job”. He has an impressive CV-even when he was sacked by Porto he had a nearly 60% win rate(we would have been in dream land with that win rate!!). He left his last job expecting to be the Spuds manager so no drama why he is out of work. Has European experience and has managed in 3 different countries-what is there not to like?


  2. All sounds POSITIVE and now with Owners only wanting the best for NUFC let’s get onboard and ENJOY the ride!
