Newcastle United: Fans slam Steve Bruce after Michael Chopra’s view - Newcastle United

Many Newcastle United fans have slammed Steve Bruce after former player Michael Chopra blasted Jamie Redknapp’s verdict that he needs to be shown more respect.

Chopra reminded the readers about what Bruce did to Sheffield Wednesday and questioned whether he showed any respect to them when he left. He posted: “Do people forget what Steve Bruce did to Sheffield Wednesday? What respect did he show Sheffield Wednesday?”

Indeed, the Geordie resigned as boss of the Owls amid reports that he was going to be named as manager of NUFC, which did not go down well with the Sheffield club.

Which of the following players was never signed by Kevin Keegan for the Toon?

There was a bitter stand off between SWFC and Bruce over a compensation pay out, where the former were reportedly demanding a £6 million fee to release the 59-year old from his contract, but the Magpies were only willing to pay less than half of that. As a result, Wednesday considered taking legal action.

Redknapp’s comments enraged Chopra enough to make a Twitter statement, which was then followed up by members of the Toon faithful.

These supporters slammed their manager after reading the tweet:
