Steve Bruce has admitted he faces a ‘huge challenge’ after being appointed the head coach of Newcastle United on a three-year contract.
The 58-year-old quit his job at Sheffield Wednesday and is replacing the widely admired Rafael Benítez, who left St James’ Park last month after failing to agree a contract extension with the club’s owner, Mike Ashley.
The former Sunderland and Aston Villa manager’s chances of success with the Magpies are complicated by Ashley, who wants to sell the club, and fans increasingly venting their anger over the lack of investment and ambition on Tyneside.
