Newcastle journalist doesn’t expect Steve Bruce to resign from managerial post

Newcastle journalist doesn’t expect Steve Bruce to resign from managerial post -Exclusive

Newcastle United journalist Liam Kennedy doesn’t expect Steve Bruce to resign from his position as manager despite growing concerns over his future.

The 58-year-old is far from a popular figure with the St James’ Park faithful despite leading the Mapgies to respectable 13th and 12th placed finishes since replacing Rafael Benitez in the dugout in 2019.

Would Ross Barkley be a good signing for Newcastle?

Yes

Yes

No

Bruce has regularly been criticised during his two years at the helm, although he’s managed to keep Newcastle in the Premier League on both occasions, with little help from owner Mike Ashley.

He was set to be rewarded for keeping Newcastle in the top-flight with a new bumper deal, but he’s yet to sign on the dotted line and is therefore out of contract next summer.

Only the biggest Newcastle fan will get 100% on this pub quiz... Against which team did Kieron Dyer and Lee Bowyer famously fight each other?

Meanwhile, Newcastle remain quiet on the transfer front having failed to make a single signing in the window despite some of their best players being strongly linked away.

Despite several off-field problems, not to mention Bruce’s fight against his own supporters, Kennedy doesn’t expect him to throw in the towel.

He told The Transfer Tavern:

“I don’t think many people would walk away. But I do think he’s in a difficult position. Speaking to him from time to time, you do get the sense, that it would be hard for him, all his family are Newcastle fans and grew up in the area.

“It must hurt that his own are turning against him. But I think Steve Bruce would take the decision lightly of walking away from Newcastle. I don’t believe it.”
