“I thought I could handle everything thrown at me but it has been very, very tough”
Steve Bruce has said this could be his last job in management and also reveals some of the abuse he received during his tenure at Newcastle United as their manager.
After the newly take over bed from the Saudi group was successful for the Newcastle United football club, making them the richest owners in world football, there were many doubts that their current manager Steve Bruce will still be at the dugout after the takeover or if he will even survive the season.
And the expected newe came in earlier today when Bruce was finally let go from his job as the manager of the Newcastle United football club.
Steve Bruce recently completed his 1000th game as the manager which also resulted in a defeat against North London club Tottenham Hotspur.
In a recent interview, Bruce revealed that this could be his last job as the manager as he is looking towards potential retirement with abuse from fans being one of the many reasons he is considering this decision.
He was heard saying “when we get beat, I get very low, but when you are managing in the premier League you do get better at dealing with it. You have to”
I thought I could handle everything thrown at me but it has been very, very tough
To never really be wanted, to feel that people wanted me to fail, to read people constantly saying I would fail, that I was a useless, of fat waste of space, II a stupid, tactically inept cabbage head or whatever.
Just comes in from many football fans along with their own Newcastle United fans sending abuse towards Steve Bruce and his family during his tenure at Newcastle United after many performances on the pitch throughout the seasons.
He also said that this could potentially be his last job as a manager as he was really tired of the whole abuse that he and his family get.
I think this might be my last job. It’s not just about me, it’s taken its toll on my whole family because they are all jordies and I can’t ignore that.
I am 60 years old and I don’t know if I want to put my wife through this again. We have got a good life so yeah this will probably be me done as a manager
But all hope is not lost for anyone looking for this man to come back as a manager as he has hinted he would be willing to take up the job again if he gets an opportunity and that he feels like he is wanted at a club.
Until I get a phone call from a chairman somewhere asking if I can give them a hand. Never say never, I’ve learnt that.
Players supported him until the very end
There was also much support that came pouring in for the manager from both the fans and players alike especially with the superstar Allan saint-maximin who thanked Bruce personally on his Twitter.
He tweeted “you are, without a doubt, one of the most gentle people that I have ever met in the world of football. You have been a man of your word, ok airing man and fair man who never hesitated to protect us. I will never forget how you treated me coma for that I will forever be grateful. It has been an honour and privilege to have you as a coach, thank you Steve”
