Newcastle United midfielder Sean Longstaff has drawn a reaction from the club’s fans after he made comments about Steve Bruce.
The club are currently awaiting a report from the World Trade Organisation about Saudi Arabia Public Investment Fund (PIF) over a £300m takeover that could be in doubt about some involvement in alleged pirate television.
Reacting to the news, various Newcastle fans were not to pleased with the player’s comments, perhaps understandably so given Bruce hasn’t been popular amongst the supporters since his appointment in the summer of 2019…
Sean Longstaff on the managerial situation post takeover: “I think it would be unfair if you didn’t give him [Bruce] the chance to carry on the work that he has started to put into place.” #nufc

He’s completely wrong, but other than “no comment”, he’s not going to say anything else.

A player supporting his current manager. Shock

That is the mindset of a mid table team. To be better we’ve got to get better players and manager. Harsh yes, unfair yes but that’s life in the fast lane.

Unfortunately for Steve new owners are well aware that a championship rated manager will only attract championship rated players #nufctakover

Matty, who plays defensive midfield, has featured in just seven games this season under Bruce and no real reports of a new deal have emerged.
