Odds slashed as new front-runner emerges in the Newcastle managerial sweepstakes

 

A new and altogether surprising front-runner has emerged in the Newcastle United managerial sweepstakes on Sunday night.

Bruce on the brink

The subject of the bench at St. James’ Park has of course taken centre stage in the headlines over the last 72 hours.

This comes on the back of the long-speculated takeover of Newcastle finally being pushed over the line on Thursday evening.

After a lengthy dispute over broadcasting rights was settled in the country, the Saudi Arabian Public Investment Fund, backed by a jaw-dropping £320 billion fortune, agreed to purchase long-time Magpies owner Mike Ashley’s majority stake in the club:

The vast majority of those associated with Newcastle, in turn, have since made their excitement clear regarding the prospect of things to come.

For one high-profile individual on Tyneside, however, news of the changing of hands at the club has marked something of a blow.

The man in question? Steve Bruce.

On the back of widespread speculation that his position was under immediate threat following Ashley’s departure, word was forthcoming earlier today that Bruce is now ‘on the brink’ of being relieved of his spot on the bench at St. James’.

Favre in pole

Rumours, as a result, have since begun to fly regarding just who will be chosen by Yasir Al-Rumayyan and co. as the man to replace Bruce, and oversee a potentially prosperous new era in the North East of England.

A whole host of tacticians have been named as candidates, including the likes of Antonio Conte, Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard.

But, as outlined above, on Sunday night, a new favourite has emerged for the Magpies post.

Following a flurry of bets altogether out of the blue, veteran tactician Lucien Favre has seen his odds to take up the reins at Newcastle slashed to just 4/1.

The Swiss tactician has been out of work since late in 2020, when a two-and-a-half year spell with Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund was brought to an end.
