As football continues to digest the news of the takeover of Newcastle United, William Hill’s Three of the Best discussed the future of Steve Bruce at St James’ Park. 

Former midfielder and pundit, Robbie Savage detailed his belief that the takeover signals the end for Bruce’s reign as Toon boss, with the new regime seeking to bring in their own boss. 

Savage stated: “They’ll probably go for a big name, to try and galvanise the fan base, I know a lot of people don’t rate Steve Bruce as a manager, but you don’t manage that many games in the Premier League if you’re not any good.” 

The Welshman went on to outline just how significant the takeover could be for the Premier League landscape, with the size of Newcastle United meaning they can become one of the country’s biggest clubs. 

Newcastle has been linked with Ralf Rangnick and Savage was keen to emphasise the importance of the club appointing someone with expansive knowledge of European football, as the club grows in stature through investment.
