Mrs Doubtfire rules himself out of Newcastle job

6 years ago

As he does his best to relegate Hull City despite spending a relative fortune, our old friend Mrs Doubtfire (AKA Steve Bruce) has counted himself out of the job.

The plastic Geordie no doubt loving it that he was being talked about as being favourite, despite a largely desperate record as a football manager.

No doubt reminded by the club owner that he is under contract and has managed to get Hull only separated from second bottom by goal difference after half the season, Bruce/Doubtfire said;

“I think the owner knows me by now, I have had three offers since I have been here and turned them all down. Why would I want to leave now?

“I’m fully focused on one thing only and that’s to stay here and try to get us out of trouble – I am determined to see it through.”

Plastic Geordie;

“People know I was a Newcastle supporter as a boy and I’m linked every time for that reason. It’s very flattering, I am a Geordie.”

Wrong to get the supporters’ hopes up;

“It would be wrong of me to think of anything else but to get this club out of the position we’re in.

“It would be wrong for the speculation to carry on, for the supporters (ED: yes don’t want to get their hopes up!!) and the players.”
