JUST IN: Newcastle sack head coach, Steve Bruce

Steve Bruce

The new owners of Newcastle United have sacked manager, Steve Bruce after their 3-2 loss to Tottenham on Sunday.

Bruce’s departure from the club was expected after the Saudi Arabian-backed consortium, led by the Public Investment Fund, completed a £305m takeover of the club on October 7.

The defeat left Newcastle in 19th position of the Premier League and without a win after their opening eight games of the 2021/22 campaign.
