Elias Sorensen has had a dreadful time on loan at Carlisle, with the player and Newcastle frustrated at a lack of first team chances at the League Two side.
But that could all change for the Danish youngster, with the News and Star reporting the Cumbrian side have sacked their manager, Steven Pressley, after just 10 months in charge.
Carlisle sit 19th in League Two and bottom of their group in the EFL Trophy, with Tuesday’s 3-1 defeat at Morecambe being the final straw for the club’s hierarchy.
It could be good news for Sorensen, with a new manager likely to start off with a clean slate, meaning he has the perfect chance to stake a claim for a regular first team spot.
It was something never afforded to him by Pressley, for whatever reason, and had he elected to play him, Sorensen may have got the goals that would have kept him in his job.
Whether that would have been the case or not, will never be known now, but if the Newcastle loanee is given his chance, and scores goals, it will be a decision the former manager will live to rue.
Could Newcastle now reconsider recalling Sorensen from loan spell?
Newcastle were said to be considering recalling Sorensen to Tyneside in January, such was the frustration at him continually watching on from the sidelines.
Whether the managerial upheaval at the club will change their opinion on the young Dane’s situation is not yet known, but it can do his chances of playing more no harm whatsoever.
All Newcastle fans will hope Sorensen finally gets the opportunity to shine he deserves, with this nightmare loan spell coming hot on the heels of the disastrous one at Blackpool last season.
