Luke Edwards has dropped an inside claim on whether Newcastle United are looking for a change in manager from now until the end of the 2020/21 term.
The Daily Telegraph journalist has tweeted: “Told again this morning from sources that #nufc are not considering a change in manager. Now this can change in a flash if Ashley intervenes but I’m told he remains hands off regarding decision making at club which is low on list of business priorities at the moment”.
Newcastle stick with Bruce
Based off of his tweet, it seems as if the St. James’ Park faithful are sticking with Steve Bruce in charge for now.
The Tyneside club currently find themselves in real danger of dropping into the relegation zone given that they are only three points above 18th-placed Fulham in the Premier League table at the moment after just 25 games (BBC Sport).
Should Bruce keep the Newcastle job?
Despite this, the board, including Mike Ashley, seem to still fully back the former Aston Villa and Sunderland boss to get themselves out of trouble from now until the end of the season.
The threat of relegation is big in the North East, as it could have a negative affect on the chances of a potential takeover of the Magpies from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) group.
An EFL Championship club is likely to be far less attractive to the consortium than one in the top flight, and so the Toon really need to start upping their game if they are to stay in the division beyond this campaign and potentially secure an exciting future.
