‘Would be a huge blow’ – Plenty of Sheffield Wednesday fans react to emerging Bruce news

Premier League side Newcastle United are reportedly set to make an official approach for Sheffield Wednesday manager Steve Bruce.

That’s according to The Sun, who claim that the 58-year-old is now the Magpies’ number-one choice to replace Rafael Benitez, who departed the North East club at the end of last season.

Bruce has only been in charge of Wednesday since the start of the year, when he was named as Jos Luhukay’s successor after a simply dismal first half of the 2018/19 campaign.

But the experienced boss soon made an immediate impact at Hillsborough, going unbeaten in his first 11 league games in charge of the Owls, and guiding them to a respectable 12th spot in the Championship table come the end of the season.

Bruce is no stranger to the North East having managed Sunderland between 2009 and 2011, and his potential appointment at St. James’ Park is likely to raise eyebrows amongst the Toon Army faithful given the rivalry between the two clubs.

His departure would also come as a massive blow to Wednesday fans, having really turned the club’s fortunes around from that of less than a year ago.
