Fabrizio Romano issues teasing update on Newcastle’s hunt for new manager

Posted by

Following their stunning takeover earlier this month, Newcastle United, now majority-owned by cash-rich Saudi-Prince Mohammad Bin Salman, are expected to undergo some major changes.

One of the biggest and first changes expected to happen at St James’ Park is finding a replacement manager.

Following his 1000th game in charge, Steve Bruce was relieved of his duties earlier this week and is now expected to be replaced by a manager with a bigger reputation.

Although several names have been linked with succeeding the Englishman, according to recent reports, the name at the top of the Magpies’ list is former Roma boss Paulo Franseca.

That’s according to a recent claim from leading football transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, who has suggested that the Portuguese tactician is ‘ready to accept’ the opportunity of becoming Newcastle’s new manager.

There is no doubting that finding the right man to lead the club forward through the first phase of this new era will be incredibly significant in the side’s future success.

However, although likely to pump millions into the side’s playing squad once the January transfer windows open, the first task on the club’s new manager’s hands, whoever that may be, will be to ensure that the Magpies remain in England’s top-flight.
