Newcastle United manager Steve Bruce is under tremendous pressure because of his side’s recent run of form.

Apparently, some first-team players are looking to hold face-to-face talks with the club’s managing director Lee Charnley regarding the manager’s feature at the club.

According to Football Insider, some of the players are in shock after the club decided to back Bruce despite the recent results.

However, club owner Mike Ashley is prepared to stick with Bruce until the end of the season as per Sky Sports.

The Newcastle players expected Steve Bruce to be sacked after the defeat against Brighton & Hove Albion.

The Magpies were beaten by Brighton in their last game and are currently two points clear of the drop zone. They desperately need a turn around in fortunes if they are to avoid relegation to the Championship.

It is evident that the team is struggling to perform under Bruce, and an immediate change is needed. A new manager could still make a difference with nine league games left.

Newcastle have been one of the worst teams in the country over the last few months, and it is understandable why the players have lost faith in the manager.

They have won just two of their last 20 matches in all competitions, and things could go from bad to worse when they take on Tottenham Hotspur after the international break.

Here is how the fans reacted to the news.
