Many Newcastle United fans have reacted with anger online over Steve Bruce’s latest quotes ahead of the club’s next game.
As the Magpies prepare to face Watford in the Premier League, it was confirmed that they would be missing a number of key first-team players.
Indeed, the likes of Callum Wilson, Joe Willock, Jamaal Lascelles, Paul Dummett, Freddie Woodman and Jonjo Shelvey are all set to be missing due to various issues.
Discussing the club’s current poor fitness record, Bruce was quoted by the Daily Mail as saying: “We, unfortunately, seem to pick up more than most. We’ll look into it, that’s for sure.”
Author of the article, Craig Hope, shared those specific quotes with his Twitter followers and they didn’t seem to go down very well.
Here’s what these Newcastle fans said…
“Lost for words.”
“He’s had 2 years to realise… and it takes a prompt before he says he’ll look into it. #bruceout.”
“Wasn’t a problem under the previous incumbent.”
“WE? It’s every club he has managed the fraud #bruceout.”
Will Steve Bruce still be Newcastle manager by the end of October?
It doesn’t look as if the supporters have a lot of faith in their current manager fixing the problem. But who knows, maybe if he does ‘look into it’, Bruce could find his own solution.
