Brugge Sack Manager Before NUFC Match

9 years ago

As a sideshow to our upcoming match against Club Brugge on Thursday, the Belgian club have sacked manager George Leekens following five defeats in a row.

Amusingly the club’s official website had a big ‘Happy Birthday George’ message only on Friday gone.

Reserve team coach, Phillippe Clement, will take charge of the team in the meantime but with Brugge seemingly in disarray it could be a perfect time to play them and make sure of our journey through to the knockout stages.

The home match at St.James’ Park suggests that the match will be no walkover but with the likes of the suspended Fabricio Coloccini and Cheick Tiote expected to play, it should ensure a stronger team than maybe expected will represent Newcastle.
