Newcastle United fans have reacted to manager Steve Bruce’s decision to move away from the area back to his home in Cheshire.

After resigning from his position in charge of Sheffield Wednesday last summer, Bruce was quickly installed as boss of Newcastle for the 2019/2020 season.

Sitting 13th in the Premier League standings as things stand, Newcastle have had a mediocre season, but Bruce has brought success in the FA Cup, guiding his side to the FA Cup quarter-finals.

Having been largely inconsistent domestically, Bruce signed a three-year deal last summer and it is expected that he will remain in charge of the Magpies next term.

With football at a standstill currently due to the COVID-19 outbreak, Bruce has opted to leave the area of Newcastle and return to his home in Cheshire with his family.

The 59-year-old has managed no less than 11 clubs including Newcastle, ranging from time in the Premier League with Hull City to a Championship spell with Birmingham City.

Reacting to the news of Bruce’s decision to move back to Cheshire, fans of Newcastle shared similar thoughts on the matter.

Would you be keen for Steve Bruce to continue as manager next season?

Give him another year...

No we need someone new...
