🎥🤬 Newcastle fans are NOT happy with Steve Bruce's appointment
Newcastle fans have given their reaction to the news that Steve Bruce has been appointed as manager on a three-year deal.
Champions League winner Rafa Benitez left the club this summer after failing to agree new terms with owner Mike Ashley.
The Spaniard revealed that retail magnate had not “shared his vision” for the future of the club and as such left to go to China on a mega-money deal.
Since then speculation has been rife that Bruce would be the man to take over – and now that’s been confirmed by the Magpies in a statement on their website.
But as expected, supporters on social media were not too enamoured with the announcement. And that’s putting it lightly.
Here’s some of the best reactions.
