New owners set to reshape Newcastle hierarchy
It is being reported that the Newcastle owners are now planning a major overhaul of the club hierarchy and there could be several changes in the club management.
According to 90 min, manager Steve Bruce and managing director, Lee Charnley could leave the club.
The new owners are looking to bring in a new chief executive a sporting director and a manager to run the club efficiently.
Apparently, the Manchester City Academy boss Jason Wilcox is a leading candidate to take over the sporting director role. Stuart Webber from Norwich City is also on the list after establishing himself as an impressive recruiter and planner.
Another name being considered for the role of the sporting director is that of Brentford’s Phil Giles.
As far as a new manager is considered, Gareth Southgate and Michael Carrick are being considered as potential replacements for Steve Bruce.
Steve Bruce wants a chance to turn things around
Meanwhile, the Newcastle United manager has pleaded with the new owners to give him a chance to prove himself.
Newcastle are currently 19th in the league table and they have failed to pick up a single win in seven outings.
Furthermore, they have conceded 16 goals and they could be in for a relegation battle this season.
It is understandable why the new owners would look to make sweeping changes and bring in a manager who could steer the club out of trouble.
It will be interesting to see if they are prepared to give Steve Bruce an opportunity to turn things around in the coming months.
“I want to continue, I’d like the chance to show the new owners what I can do,” Bruce told the Telegraph.
“But you have to be realistic and they may well want a new manager to launch things for them.
“New owners normally want a new manager. I’ve been around long enough to understand that.
“That decision is not up to me. I accept that and I will accept what comes my way. I have to wait to have those conversations with people when the time is right.
“If I don’t make it to a 1,000 games against Spurs, you might say that could only happen to me, but I don’t think it would be cruel. It’s just football.”
