Newcastle's Saudi-led takeover came in strong. The new owners want to rebuild the club since day one and are now working towards that goal.
'The Mirror' reports that the first thing on the new owner's list is to fire the current manager, Steve Bruce. The English paper claims that Newcastle's current boss will be sacked next week. The club will have to pay the British manager 10 million euros as compensation.
The money won't be a problem for Newcastle's owners. The board, led by Amanda Staveley, is already looking for Bruce's replacement. At the moment, Lampard and Gerrard are the two favorites for the job.
Newcastle's next game will be against Tottenham. According to 'The Mirror', Steve Bruce will not be in charge by then. It will be Graeme Jones, who will be 'The Magpies' temporary manager until the new one gets announced.
Newcastle supporters celebrated the Saudi take-over like a title. Currently, Newcastle stands 19th on the table, supporters hope that with the new administration the club will revert the situation and fight for the Premier League title in the next couple of years.
