Newcastle United offer clue that Steve Bruce will still be in the dugout for Tottenham clash

Newcastle United offer clue that Steve Bruce will still be in the dugout for Tottenham clash

Newcastle takeover puts Steve Bruce’s future in doubt

Last week, many Newcastle fans’ dreams were made a reality when Mike Ashley’s 14-year reign in charge of the Tyneside club came to an end, and the Saudi Public Investment Fund took the reins, backed by a hefty budget.

Now boasting the richest owners in world football, but sitting in the Premier League relegation zone without a win, the Magpies are sure to spend money in January in order to avoid a somewhat humiliating relegation to England’s second tier.

In addition, they seem set to part ways with current boss Steve Bruce, expected to be sacked in the not too distant future.

Hint that Bruce will be in the technical area against Tottenham

Whilst it was originally predicted that Bruce would depart St James’ Park ahead of the Magpies’ clash with Tottenham on Sunday afternoon, that now appears to be less likely.

As per Fabrizio Romano and others, the Englishman has been pencilled in to take on the pre-match press conference, set to take place on Friday afternoon. Romano notes that while the club are “working to appoint a new manager”, they are not rushing the process, and “want to be 100% sure on a candidate before sacking Bruce”.

With many names being thrown around, who do you think Newcastle should appoint?
