Manager Steve Bruce leaves Newcastle United following a mutual agreement

Bruce was appointed as the Managerial position in 2019. In his two years at the club, his side finished at 13th and 12th position.

Newcastle club and their manager Steve Bruce have reached a mutual agreement, and the 60-year-old has resigned from his job as the manager at the club, only 13 days after the takeover of the club by the Saudi-baked PIF.

Bruce was appointed as the Managerial position in 2019. In his two years at the club, his side finished at 13th and 12th position. Currently, they are languishing at the bottom half of the table, only second from the bottom after their 8 games. On Sunday, Bruce made his 1000th appearance as a manager in the game against Tottenham, where they put up a competitive show, but the Hotspur team managed to steal a 3-2 win. It was also his first and last game under the new owners.

According to the reports of BBC, the manager has let out a statement too, in which he said: “I’m grateful to everyone connected with Newcastle United for the opportunity to manage this unique football club.” He further praised his players and support staff, claiming that the club had some highs and some lows in the past two years and everyone showed some great character in those times. He signed off wishing the club and its fans good luck for the remaining season, as he hopes that the new owners will be able to make a palpable difference in the coming time.

The club too released a statement in which they showed their gratitude to the manager and wished him well for his prospects.
