Loads of Newcastle United fans have been destroying former Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas after he responded to reports linking him with the manager job at NUFC.
As per Foot Mercato the 42-year old, as well as Lucien Favre, has been lined up as a potential alternative if the Tyneside club are unable to persuade Mauricio Pochettino to take over from Steve Bruce at St. James’ Park.
Indeed, the Portuguese boss has managed 81 games in the top flight, winning 42, drawing 19 and losing 20, with his teams scoring 128 goals and conceding 99, accumulating 145 points in the process, according to Transfermarkt.
If you had to choose one, who would you want to be NUFC's manager next season?
These members of the Toon faithful destroyed the link on Twitter, with a couple of Magpies suggesting that they would rather have Bruce or ex-manager Alan Pardew at the wheel:
Rather have bruce
