Newcastle acquisition puts Steve Bruce in trouble
Last week, the dreams of many Newcastle fans came true when Mike Ashley’s 14-year reign in charge of the Tyneside club came to an end, and the Saudi Public Investment Fund took the reins, backed by a budget. considerable.

Now backed by the richest owners in world football, but sitting in the relegation zone without a win, the Magpies are sure to spend money in January to avoid a somewhat humiliating relegation to England’s second division.
Also, they seem willing to part ways with current boss Steve Bruce. expected to be fired in the not too distant future.
Brendan Rodgers “on pole position” to replace Steve Bruce
According to trusted Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, the last man to replace Steve Bruce is none other than Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers.
The Irishman guided the Foxes to FA Cup triumph last season, as well as a second consecutive season in the Europa League, but has enjoyed a less than ideal start to 2021-22.
After seven games, the Midlands team is 13th, having won 2, tied 2 and lost 3, as they watch the sea on the defensive.

As a consequence, it looks like Rodgers will be trading the Midlands for Tyneside in the coming weeks as the new Magpie owners look to find a man to lead their new project.
Such a move will not come cheap, however, as Rodgers has a £ 16m buyout clause in his contract with Leicester City. In addition, Newcastle would have to liquidate the remainder of Steve Bruce’s contract, which amounts to 8 million pounds.
This would make the change of manager cost £ 24m upfront, putting it in third place in Newcastle’s record transfers (behind Joelinton and Joe Willock), and is a clear indication of the new owners’ goals going forward. .
