Steve Bruce clarifies contract situation at Newcastle United
Steve Bruce is NOT out of contract at Newcastle United next summer.
Bruce made the admission after tonight’s 2-0 friendly win over Burton Albion. United’s head coach had responded to a claim that he was set to be handed a new three-year deal at the Pirelli Stadium.
Bruce – who also said there had been no talks over a new deal – was then asked if his contract would end next summer. The 60-year-old replied: “No.”
Meanwhile, Jacob Murphy and Joelinton were on target against League One Burton. Bruce said: “It’s about working our way up. We’re four weeks in. You’ve seen the difference. They looked fresher and full of running, which obviously you want to see. I was pleased with the performance.”
