Newcastle United has parted ways with manager Steve Bruce following a series of poor results in the Premier League.
Bruce had spent just over two years in charge at St James’ Park after succeeding Rafael Benítez in July 2019 and presided over his 1,000th game in club management when Tottenham won 3-2 on Tyneside in front of the live television cameras on Sunday.
The club has announced the decision via it’s official website and social media platforms.
“Newcastle United can confirm that Steve Bruce has left his position as head coach by mutual consent,” the club said, thanking Bruce “for his contribution” and wishing him well.
The tactician who is yet to win any premier league match this season has left his side in the relegation zone despite keeping the club in the Premier League in the last two seasons.
Bruce will now pocket around €8Million as compensation for his services.
According to the news around the club, Former Chelsea manager Antonio Conte and Former Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane are among the frontrunners of the jobs.
