Steve Bruce sends message to prospective Newcastle owners on next season

Steve Bruce says he continues to hope he will remain Newcastle manager amid the ongoing takeover saga engulfing the club.

In tough circumstances, Bruce has done an admirable job in keeping Newcastle out of relegation danger in the Premier League and set his sights on a top-half finish.

The Magpies are 12 points clear of the relegation zone and just six behind seventh-placed Tottenham.

And Bruce needs a strong end to the season to convince the potential new Newcastle owners that he is the right man to lead the club forward.

A host of names have been mentioned in relation to Bruce’s job including Sean Dyche and Mauricio Pochettino.

But the 59-year-old insists what happens with the £300million takeover, nothing will change for him and he still wants to stay.

“As I’ve repeatedly said, whatever’s best for Newcastle, I’m okay with it,” said Bruce.

“If that’s the best thing for Newcastle to move forward, then that’s okay with me.

“Will I be Newcastle manager next year? I sincerely hope so.

“I really have enjoyed the challenge of this great club of ours, so I can only plan ahead, presume and make sure that we still do the work we were going to do.

“How are we going to come back, when are we going to come back? All of those things.

“Then, of course, when the transfer window opens, what can we do to improve the squad going forward?

“I’ll just carry on, soldier on and get on with it.”

Newcastle legend Alan Shearer recently praised the work Bruce has done at Newcastle.

“I think, with the squad that he has got, he’s doing as good a job as anyone could have done,” Shearer said.

“I think he’s doing a very good job and they shouldn’t have to warm to him.

“It was only because of the circumstances in which he was given the job but, with the team that’s he has got, and the position that he’s in, he’s done well.”
