Report: Newcastle's owners set to make £8m decision
The Mail claim that Newcastle United’s new owners are set to pay the £8million compensation needed to relieve Steve Bruce of his duties.
The Toon currently sit in 19th position in the Premier League with the pressure firmly on Bruce. Now, his future is in enormous doubt.
That is because the £300million takeover of Newcastle has come to fruition – eventually. Piracy and human rights issues have been resolved.
The consortium, financially backed by Saudi Arabia’s PIF and Amanda Staveley, are expected to make a decision in the near future on Bruce.
Bruce, who sits on 999 games as a manager, will be hoping to earn the right to continue as Toon boss. But it looks more and more likely.
A report from The Mail says that Newcastle’s new owners have now decided that they will sanction the £8million pay-off clause in his contract.
£8m Bruce decision: New Newcastle owners making the right decision
Unfortunately for Bruce, he is already out of his depth with a club the size of Newcastle. The players they have, the size, should not be in 19th.
Newcastle are going to be spending big in the transfer market. Ultimately, the turnover of players is going to be large and improvements will be made.
The Toon are going to grow out of players quickly. The current squad, only a handful will remain for a prolonged period. Same with the manager.
With Bruce already struggling, Newcastle need a boss that can tempt players into joining the club – Bruce is not that man.
