Odd unit: EU | UK | US

Who is Newcastle's manager?

Steve Bruce is the current Newcastle United manager after taking over from Rafa Benitez in July 2019. Bruce was born in Corbridge, England on 31 December 1960. He previously played professional football for clubs around England such as Gillingham, Norwich City, Manchester United and Sheffield United at centre back.

Steve Bruce came through the Gillingham youth academy in 1977 and broke into the first team in 1979. At Gillingham, he made 205 competitive appearances scoring 29 goals before moving on to Norwich City in 1984. In his time at Norwich City, he made 141 appearances scoring 14 goals over the course of 3 years. This attracted the interest of Manchester United in 1987 as they acquired the services of Steve Bruce for a reported fee of £800,000. Whilst at Manchester United, Bruce made 309 competitive appearances for the club between the years of 1987 and 1996 as he scored 36 goals.

Bruce joined Birmingham City on a free transfer in late 1996 and signed a contract which made him one of the highest paid players in Britain at the time. He then joined Sheffield United before retiring in 1999 to go into management at the same club.

Across his career, Steve Bruce managed Sheffield United, Huddersfield Town, Wigan Athletic, Crystal Palace, Birmingham City, Sunderland, Hull City, Aston Villa, Sheffield Wednesday and Newcastle United spanning a career of over 20 years. He’s been fairly successful winning the Football League First Division play-offs in 2002 and the Football League Championship playoffs in 2016 with Birmingham City and Hull City respectively. He’s also been runner up in many competitions such as the FA Cup and once more in the Football League Championships in 2013.

Bruce was appointed as Newcastle United manager in July 2019 after Rafa Benitez announced that he would be leaving at the end of his contract.
