Steve Bruce Speaks As Newcastle Head Coach And More Pictures From Training

Steve Bruce gave his first interview to NUFC TV after attending his first training session.

This is the tweet of a section of the interview along with a link to the full interview which lasts close to 5 minutes for those who are able to watch it.

What we gathered from this interview is that Steve Bruce is very calm and very pragmatic. He certainly sounds like a good man-manager and we can see why those who have played for him like him.

He seems to have allowed the transition from Ben Dawson and Neil Redfearn to be smooth as he said he took a more observant approach to training today.

He also says that he has taken cues from Dawson and Redfearn on the status of the squad at the moment. It looks as if they are in good shape with only Dwight Gayle suffering from a slight calf injury

Bruce speaks of his regret of not taking the job after Bobby Robson and that it has stuck with him all of these years.

Steve also says that he knows he is not Rafa but that it is his job to try and move the club forward. While he mentions the loss of Salomon Rondon and Ayoze Perez, he does say that they are in the process of resolving those losses.

Here is a link provided by the club to about 40 pictures of today’s training session.
