Former Chelsea manager Frank Lampard is being considered as a replacement for Steve Bruce at Newcastle United.
Following the £300 million takeover by the Saudi Arabian Public Investment Fund, Bruce has fallen out of favor on Tyneside, with many expecting him to leave before Newcastle’s next game against Tottenham on Sunday. After being knocked out of the League Cup by Burnley, the Magpies are second-bottom of the Premier League table and have yet to win a game this season. Despite their poor performance, there is reason to rejoice: Mike Ashley’s 14-year reign comes to an end with the takeover. Newcastle supporters will be hoping for a change of guard that will see them back competing at the top end of the table and for trophies.
