A number of Newcastle United fans have reacted positively after Amanda Staveley clarified that Steve Bruce would be taking charge of their upcoming match against Tottenham Hotspur.
Following with Saudi-led takeover of the club, the general consensus had been that Bruce would be sacked and someone else would be brought in to spearhead the new era on Tyneside.
However, ahead of their next Premier League fixture, Staveley has confirmed that Bruce will remain in charge for the next game at the very least.
A key part of the statement read: “We have had an extremely busy week reviewing the business and getting to know people and it is imperative that we continue to be patient and considered in our approach.”
The information was shared by the official Newcastle Twitter account and the club’s supporters were quick to flock to the message.
Will Spurs beat Newcastle this weekend?
Here’s what these NUFC fans said…
“Actual communication from club to fans! What is this sorcery.”
The news could have gone down very badly, but it seems as though these supporters were at least grateful for the clear and upfront communication.
Still, if Bruce fails to win the game, their kind thoughts may soon turn sour. After all, with the Magpies stuck in the relegation zone, so they need to start picking up points soon if they are to avoid the drop.
