- Manager wants to impose back-four system on resistant squad
- ‘I’ve got enough on my CV to take the club forward’
Steve Bruce has effectively declared war on his Newcastle United players after revealing he is no longer prepared to accommodate their tactical demands.
“I’ve let them be comfortable. But, like I say, the gloves are off now and we will do it my way. We’ve played a certain way to try to get the results we need,” said Bruce as he continued to face a barrage of criticism on Tyneside following Tuesday’s immensely disappointing 1-0 defeat at Sheffield United.
