Steve Bruce is the favourite to be the first Premier League manager to be sacked in the upcoming 2021/22 season following a turbulent couple of years at the helm of Newcastle United.
The 60-year-old was a controversial choice when he arrived in place of Rafael Benitez when the Spaniard left the post at St James’ Park at the end of the 2018/19 season, as fans of the Magpies weren’t impressed in the drop of calibre between the two managers CVs or the fact that Bruce used to manage Sunderland between 2009 and 2011.
Bruce has become a bit of a journeyman since his days at Birmingham City between the years of 2001 and 2007, as he has had six clubs since he left St Andrew’s, with his four-year spell at Hull City from June 2012 until July 2016 being his second-longest in club management, overseeing 201 matches. As it stands, Bruce has managed 11 different clubs since beginning his managerial career in July 1998.
Bruce is priced at 7/1 to be the next Premier League manager to leave his post in the 2021/22 season - click on the link to claim this bet in your bet slip!
