Every manager linked with Newcastle United since takeover – including Premier League and Champions League winners

Since PCP Partners, the Public Investment of Saudi Arabia and the Reuben brothers completed a takeover last week, a number of managers have been touted with succeeding Bruce at St James’s Park.

The 60-year-old turned out to be Mike Ashley’s last managerial appointment when he joined from Sheffield Wednesday in 2019.
