“Yes please”: Newcastle fans excited by reported interest in 43-year-old manager
Newcastle United are being linked with Napoli boss Gennaro Gattuso – and some of the club’s fans on Twitter have responded by claiming they’d love to see him appointed at St James’ Park.
Calciomercato reports that both Newcastle and Wolverhampton Wanderers are eyeing the 43-year-old, and he’s someone they would be interested in appointing.
It is understood that Wolves’ interested is consolidated due to the fact Jorge Mendes is Gattuso’s agent, while Newcastle’s interest is fresh.
Italian boss Gattuso is out of contract this summer with Serie A club Napoli, who are fifth in the their league this season.
Meanwhile, Newcastle’s current boss Steve Bruce still has one more year at St James’ Park that keeps him at the club until 2022.
However, that hasn’t stopped speculation surfacing about the Newcastle managerial position.
A selection of Newcastle supporters on social media clearly want to see the back of Bruce, despite the fact his side are on the brink of securing another season of Premier League football.
Gattuso, who was a superb midfielder in his playing days, would be an extremely high-profile appointment if the Toon stepped up interest in him.
He’s someone that prefers a 4-3-3 attacking formation, and his Napoli side won the Italian Cup in the 2019/20 season.
Here are some Newcastle fans discussing Gattuso:
If GG agrees to join Newcastle then he would bring the fight and passion to the dressing room that's got to be worth at least 10 points in a season. Something we need ALL OF THE TIME !
