According to Sky Sports, the potential new owners at Newcastle will give Steve Bruce a chance before bringing in their own manager.

Since the takeover talk heated up last week, there has been speculation that a big name manager would arrive to take Bruce’s place. There was chat of Rafa Benitez returning, while odds on Max Allegri shortened.

However, a report by Sky Sports claims that Bruce will at least get to complete the season…whenever that may be.

That means Bruce has nine games to save his job and prove he is the man to take Newcastle forward, potentially lifting them higher than they’ve ever been before.

Sadly for Bruce, it’s hard to see him patrolling the touchline when next season kicks off.

While he has done a good job, he’s not the marquee name who the new owners will want spearheading their investment.

Someone like Benitez would be hugely popular, having departed last summer after issues with Mike Ashley. Rafa returning and new owners would literally be a dream scenario for most fans.

However, Bruce deserves to see the season out. Under testing conditions, he has done better than most expected.

His side are currently 13th in the table, on 35 points after winning their last game at Southampton before football was put on hold.
