As Steve Bruce sacked, the latest manager named as contender for Newcastle job revealed

Another manager has, on Wednesday, become the latest named linked with the Newcastle United job.

Bruce sacked

Newcastle’s first game following their takeover by the SAPIF ended in pretty disastrous fashion. The Magpies took an early lead in the game but then went on to be dominated and lose the tie 3-2, with a late Eric Dier own goal making the tie look much close than it actually was.

Following the game, Steve Bruce, who saw speculation over his future began to fly almost as soon as the takeover was complete, stated that he will carry on in the job until he hears otherwise:

However, The Times then reported on Monday that Newcastle were set to step up their search for a new manager this week, with Roberto Martinez, Steven Gerrard and Unai Emery all said to be emerging as leading contenders to replace Bruce.

Newcastle then confirmed on Wednesday that Bruce had left the club:

Graeme Jones is set to take charge of the club on an interim basis.

Latest manager linked with Newcastle job
