Steve Bruce 'safe' in his job at Newcastle United
Steve Bruce is safe in his job at Newcastle United as fans clamour of his dismissal, according to a report.
Bruce is under intense pressure following Tuesday night’s 1-0 defeat to previously-winless Sheffield United at Bramall Lane on Tuesday night.
United’s head coach insisted that he would not resign after the Premier League defeat.
“Yes, I’m bitterly disappointed that we haven’t played well enough, especially in the first half,” said Bruce. "But I’ll leave that (discussions about his future) to other people – you’re asking the wrong person. I’ll never, ever walk away from a challenge, and I think I’ve been in it long enough to have that respect.”
