Steve Bruce’s job as manager of Newcastle United is not currently under threat, according to a report published by The Times.
As things stand, the Magpies are currently viewed by many as being one of the clubs that will be contesting the Premier League relegation battle this season.
Apart from their shock victory against Tottenham Hotspur, Newcastle have been largely disappointing.
Bruce’s appointment as manager of the St James’ Park club during the summer was not exactly viewed positively and many fans of the Toon Army do not believe that the former Aston Villa boss is the right man to lead the Tyneside outfit at this point in time.
Newcastle lacked imagination during their 5-0 thrashing at the hands of Leicester City in the Premier League last weekend. The display would certainly have not won Bruce any admirers.
Bruce’s summer signings were also not the most impressive.
Newcastle additions Andy Carroll and Allan Saint-Maximin have so far spent more time off the pitch than on it.
Joelinton meanwhile has looked decent at times but has also not yet fully convinced that he is capable of regularly churning out match-winning displays.
Miguel Almiron is also another Newcastle player who has been rather frustrating to watch this season.
The South American showed some positive signs during the second half of last season following his arrival at the club during the January transfer window from Atlanta United.
He was also impressive in the Copa America for Paraguay but has unfortunately been unable to replicate the same standards in the English top-flight for Newcastle so far.
