Steve Bruce has done ‘an amazing job’ at Newcastle United given the ‘bit of negativity’ surrounding his appointment a year ago and ‘a lot of the off the pitch noise’, according to Brighton manager Graham Potter.
Graham Potter said “I think he’s done an amazing job when you consider the bit of negativity that was surrounding it to start with and a lot of the off the pitch noise shall we say that doesn’t help but in terms of results, he’s clear of anything. He’s assembled a team with some real attacking threats there, defensively organised, so I think he’s done a great job. He’s a really experienced guy, a top football person. Whenever I come across his teams, I respect the teams a lot so I think he’s done really well.”
Following Rafa Benitez’s departure last summer, Steve Bruce was parachuted into the hot seat just three-and-a-half weeks before the season started. Bruce quickly acknowledged that he knew he was ‘not going to be everyone’s cup of tea’ but pleaded with supporters to judge him on results. There have been some poor performances along the way, including a 5-0 defeat at Leicester, and Steve Bruce has had to contend with the uncertainty surrounding the club’s prospective takeover in recent months but Newcastle currently lie in 13th place in the Premier League and reached their first FA Cup quarter-final since 2006 last month.
