Loads of Newcastle United fans have slammed a view on the prospective takeover in the North East as Simon Jordan has said on talkSPORT (via ChronicleLive) that Steve Bruce has ‘earned the right’ to stay on at the Tyneside club after the proposed deal between Mike Ashley and the Saudi-led consortium is finalised.
As per the outlet, the former Crystal Palace owner Jordan believes that Bruce should be given as long as 12 months to prove that he has what it takes to manage the Magpies with the billionaire backing which is expected to come.
Should Bruce be in charge after the takeover?
Indeed, the 59-year old has guided the Toon to a relatively impressive 13th place in the Premier League table so far this season on 35 points, eight outside of the relegation zone with nine games still left to play, according to the BBC.
However, he is not the would-be owner’s man, as these NUFC supporters slammed Jordan’s view after hearing of it on The Chronicle’s official Twitter page. Indeed, it is perhaps unsurprising that the supporters do not agree that Bruce needs time to prove himself as many didn’t want him in the first place and expressed their dismay at his appointment last July (Chronicle).
Many have since continued to be critical, so it is easy to see why these fans disagreed with Jordan…
