In an exclusive interview with Football FanCast, Steve Bull, who scored 306 goals during his career for Wolves, believes that Steve Bruce has proved a lot of Newcastle United fans wrong after their recent run of form.
In a survey that 14,000 people took, The Chronicle revealed that 95% of people wanted to see Steve Bruce sacked by Newcastle United – since then he has taken seven points from a possible nine available to push the Magpies towards Premier League safety.
Speaking on how Bruce has proved a lot of Newcastle fans wrong and that he knows what the fans want and expect from the club and team, Bull told FFC:
“Yeah, I think he has and he’s a good friend of mine is Bruce, and I know that he wears his heart on his sleeve and he knows what Newcastle fans want and what they are all about.
“I think he’s just got that bit of spark back in the players and I think he can keep them up.”
Bruce had previously said that he believes he is the man to keep Newcastle in the Premier League, and he has been proven right in recent weeks.
That said, this can’t be a time for complacency for Newcastle, especially ahead of successive top-flight fixtures against Liverpool and Arsenal, the former being at Anfield this weekend.
