'He’s done what he’s been asked' - David Moyes delivers verdict on Steve Bruce and Mike Ashley at Newcastle United
David Moyes has praised the ‘good job’ done by Steve Bruce at Newcastle United and the ‘really good support’ he’s had from owner Mike Ashley.
Newcastle are battling relegation with Bruce coming under intense fire and criticism from angry and fed-up supporters.
But Moyes believes Bruce has done a good job – and the one he was tasked with doing, although Newcastle are not yet safe.
Speaking ahead of the Saturday lunchtime kick-off, Moyes said: “I’m expecting a really difficult game, but if I’m going to anyone in the Premier League I’ll say it’s a difficult game.
"They’ll see it as a difficult game as well and that’s how the Premier League is this year.
“Steve Bruce has done a good job, he’s done what he’s been asked. He’s had really good support from his owner at difficult times and I think because of that you’ll see Newcastle staying in the Premier League.
“It's a tough game at Newcastle and it always has been.”
