PREMIER - Report: Rodgers is not interested in succeeding Bruce
Newcastle United, now majority-owned by cash-rich Saudi Prince Mohammad Bin Salman, is likely to search for a manager to replace Steve Bruce following their eye-watering takeover.
Bruce has yet to be dismissed of his responsibilities, but new report from the Telegraph imply he may not be in control when the Magpies face Spurs on Saturday.
Several managers have been connected with a transfer to the North of England in an attempt to locate a suitable successor.
Steven Gerrard of Rangers, Frank Lampard of Chelsea, and Brendan Rodgers of Leicester City are among the candidates mentioned.
Rodgers is said to have ruled himself out of contention, with the Northern Irishman reportedly enjoying life at the King Power Stadium.
According to a recent story from John Percy of the Telegraph, Rodgers has no interest in succeeding Bruce "if/when" he is fired.
