Breaking News: Newcastle United Sacked Steve Bruce

Newcastle have parted company with manager Steve Bruce. Bruce has been in charge for just over two years, but the new owners have decided a change is needed with Newcastle having failed to win a match this season and in the relegation zone

Newcastle can confirm that Steve Bruce has left his position as head coach by mutual consent. The club would like to place on record its gratitude to Steve for his contribution and wishes him well for the future.

Graeme Jones will lead the team on an interim basis, starting with Saturday's trip too Crystal Palace.

He will be supported by the coaching team of Steve Agnew, Stephen Clemence, Ben Dawson and Simon Smith.

Steve Bruce said: I am grateful to everyone connected with Newcastle United for the opportunity to manage this unique football club.

"I would like to thank my coaching team, the players and the support staff in particular for all their hard work. There have been highs and lows, but they have given everything even in difficult moments and should be proud of their efforts.

"This is a club with incredible support, and I hope the new owners can take it forward to where we all want it to be. I wish everyone the very best of luck for the rest of this season and beyond."

Steve Bruce to Telegraph after leaving Newcastle

"I think it might be my last job. It has been very, very tough. To never really be wanted, to feel that people wanted me to fail & saying I would fail, that I was useless, a fat waste of space, a tactically inept cabbage head".
