Steve Bruce insisted he has no intention of quitting as boss of Newcastle United – despite many fans feeling he has reached the point of no return. Losing to Brentford in the quarter-finals of the League Cup may not have been so bad had Newcastle been further up the table and Bruce’s team not been at full strength. But the former Man United skipper’s side did not look like they were playing for him in the capital. When asked about he angry reaction to the defeat,
Steve Bruce said: “I’m a resilient so-and-so so I’ll need to be ready for what’s coming my way. The supporters are entitled to their opinion and I accept that. Unfortunately, we haven’t done enough, so we have to accept what is coming our way and get ready for what is a huge challenge ahead of us in the Premier League. I can’t hide my disappointment because we’ve had a great opportunity to get into a first semi-final in many years. I’m bitterly disappointed and very, very frustrated. I stand by what I said when I walked in the door – I picked the team I thought was going be good enough to win the match. Unfortunately, Brentford played very, very well on the night.”
