Steve Bruce reacts to explosive Fabian Schar interview at Newcastle United
Steve Bruce has backed Fabian Schar’s blunt assessment of Newcastle United's defeat to Southampton.
Bruce’s side was beaten 2-0 at the St Mary’s Stadium before the international break – and Schar didn’t hold back after the game.
“Everybody had a **** game, to be honest,” said the defender. “And we can't continue like this. All the players need to come together more. It's what we need to think about – everybody needs to look at themselves and do a better job. If we keep playing like that, it's not enough.”
Bruce was asked about Schar’s comments ahead of this afternoon’s home game against Chelsea.
"He was 100% right, so I've got no qualms with the interview,” said United’s head coach. “He was absolutely spot on – we were poor on the night. There was no disputing it, and no getting away from it. We've had to wait a long time, but we've got a chance to put it right."
