Steve Bruce leaves Newcastle

 

Newcastle United has confirmed the departure of their Head Coach, Steve Bruce by mutual consent.

Steve Bruce was tasked to leave his role as the Head Coach after a group led by the Public Investment Fund, PCP Capital Partners and RB Sports & Media completed 100% acquisition of the club on 7 October, 2021.

He leaves the Magpies after more than two years in charge.
In his first spell, he escaped relegation by placing 13th position in the 2019-20 season and 12th position in the 2020-21 season respectively.

 

Steve Bruce thanked the club after his departure, He said: “ I am grateful to everyone connected with Newcastle United for the opportunity to manage this unique football club”.

“I would like to thank my coaching team, the players and the support staff in particular for all their hard work. There have been highs and lows, but they have given everything even in difficult moments and should be proud of their efforts”.
