English Premier League club, Newcastle United have announced the departure of Steve Bruce as their manager via an official club statement.
In the statement the club disclosed that Bruce left by Mutual Consent
“#NUFC can confirm that Steve Bruce has left his position as head coach by mutual consent.
The club would like to place on record its gratitude to Steve for his contribution and wishes him well for the future.” The club wrote on its social media pages.
Bruce will now surely be replaced by a big name as NUFC’s wealthy new owners have set their sights on ambitious targets such as Antonio Conte and Brendan Rodgers.
This will come as no surprise following the recent takeover at St James’ Park, though Bruce remained in charge for the defeat against Tottenham at the weekend.
Newcastle will now be looking for a new manager, however, with Bruce’s departure confirmed this morning.
