Newcastle United training levels have dropped in recent days, the Telegraph says, due to a lack of clarity over the club’s future.
Newcastle mood worsens
Newcastle’s takeover went through last week to great excitement, but Steve Bruce currently remains in limbo.
The Newcastle boss has not yet been sacked, although it is widely anticipated that his days are numbered at St. James’ Park.
The Magpies are set to part company with Bruce before the weekend, but with Newcastle’s players and coaches not knowing about their future the mood behind the scenes is said to have darkened.
Bruce still in charge
The Telegraph reports that ‘worryingly’ Newcastle’s training sessions have dipped in standard.
Coaches are said to be fearing for their futures, while players are reportedly lacking focus.
That may not be ideal preparation for Newcastle as they head into a game against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.
The atmosphere at St. James’ Park is sure to be electric, as the club celebrate a new era.
But with Newcastle’s pre match preparation not going to plan, according to the latest update, that could make their task of picking up the three points a challenge.
