Newcastle United manager Steve Bruce is the favourite to be the next manager to go following the Magpies torrid start to the season, which has seen them earn just three points from their opening seven matches.
Following the news that Newcastle are set to be taken over by the Saudi Arabia Public Investment Fund, the Magpies boss’ future now looks incredibly uncertain as he is already very unpopular with the Toon Army faithful and now has no ties to the impending ownership, meaning that they will likely spend money to tempt a higher calibre manager to the club.
Bruce has had somewhat of a hostile reception since taking the role at St James’ Park having been a former Sunderland manager as well as portrayed as a significant downgrade on Rafa Benitez in the eyes of the fans. Some argue Bruce has done a decent job at the North East outfit though, keeping them clear of a relegation scrap in his two full seasons.
However, following the Magpies poor start to the season, and the fact that Newcastle will be expecting instant results up until investments can be made in January to reinforce the squad, the 60-year-olds future is up in the air and he is priced at 1/8 to be the next manager to leave - click on the link to claim this bet in your bet slip!<br/>
