Steve Bruce admits fear of been sacked after Newcastle have new owner.
Newcastle manager Steve Bruce admits he fears been sacked by the Magpies new Saudi Arabia owner.
A £305million deal was agreed with Mike Ashley and signed off by the Premier League as the club now belongs to a Saudi Arabian.
Premier League confirmed the takeover had been signed off after receiving ‘legally binding assurances’ that the Saudi state would not control the club.
After the takeover Steve Bruce insist he wants to continue as Newcastle boss and prove to new owner what he can do.
“I want to continue, I’d like the chance to show the new owners what I can do, but you have to be realistic and they may well want a new manager to launch things for them,’ Bruce told Media.
“New owners normally want a new manager. I’ve been around long enough to understand that.
“That decision is not up to me. I accept that and I will accept what comes my way. I have to wait to have those conversations with people when the time is right.
“If I don’t make it to a 1,000 games against Spurs, you might say that could only happen to me, but I don’t think it would be cruel. It’s just football.
“I am not going to be bitter or angry about anything, whatever happens. Of course there will be sadness if I lose my job, it’s the job I’ve wanted my whole life, certainly since I became a manager and as hard as it’s been, I have been enormously proud to be manager of Newcastle United. That will never change.”
