Yasir Al Rumayyan, Amanda Staveley and Jamie Reuben were at St James’s Park today to watch the club’s first game under their ownership. Newcastle suffered a 3-2 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur.

There were more calls from fans for Bruce to go during the Premier League fixture, and the club’s head coach – who met Staveley on Monday – was asked if there were more talks planned.

Bruce said: “I’ll wait wait until they see fit. We’ll see what they’re going to say. You’d better ask somebody else that.”

On the takeover, Bruce added: “The owners have been very, very respectful over the last week, 10 days. It’s obviously the start, which gives everybody a little bit of hope. It’s going to take time, patience, of course. To have the supporters back on side was terrific.”
