Newcastle boss Steve Bruce insisted that he won’t walk away from the challenge at the club as he looks to improve the team’s form after a poor start to the season. Newcastle head into the weekend without winning any of their first five games of the new season. He was the target of a certain section of fans during the 4-1 loss to Manchester United last weekend. With a lot of speculation about his future, Bruce said there was no chance he would walk away from the job at hand.
“No, but it’s not all about me. I’m here to only do what I think is best for the club, and that manages it as best I can and keep us moving along.” Newcastle boss Steve Bruce said. “It’s for other people to answer that. I will continue to do my best – I’m never going to walk away from the challenge of it, that’s for sure – so you’re asking the wrong person.”
“Look, it’s always difficult. I’d be sick if I said I quite enjoyed it,” he added on the jeers at Old Trafford. “It’s difficult, but look, the frustration is, like any other Premier League club or any other Football League club, if you don’t get results, then ultimately the manager, head coach, whatever I am, bears the brunt.”
“That’s what it is, so I have to accept that results haven’t been good enough.” Bruce continued. “What the disappointment was, was we played very, very well at a difficult place last week, as difficult as it was ever going to get and we played very, very well and didn’t get anything out of the game, which is the frustrating thing.”
