Steve Bruce to be PL’s worst-paid manager at Newcastle – Mirror

As per a report from the Daily Mirror, Steve Bruce is set to become the lowest paid manager in the English top-flight, after agreeing to take over at Newcastle United.

Newcastle and Benitez part ways

Confirmation of Rafael Benitez’s Newcastle exit arrived three weeks ago.

Following 3 hugely-successful years at the helm at St. James’ Park, the Magpies announced that the Spanish tactician would depart the club on the 30th of June, following the expiration of his contract.

The Geordie outfit cited an impasse in negotiations over a new deal as the reasoning behind Benitez moving on:

‘We have worked hard to extend Rafa’s contract over a significant period of time, however it has not been – and will not be – possible to reach an agreement with Rafa and his representatives.’

Bruce ‘under consideration’

As such, rumours have since inevitably been rampant regarding who the Newcastle brass are set to install as Benitez’s replacement.

The likes of Mikel Arteta, Jose Mourinho, Arsene Wenger and Eddie Howe have all been touted as potential arrivals at St. James’ Park, but the last week has seen a new candidate, in the form of Steve Bruce, emerge as the clear front-runner for the post.

The Englishman, currently in charge of Sheffield Wednesday, emerged as 9/4 favourite with a number of bookmakers earlier this week:

Bruce’s deal

And, as per the aforementioned report from the Daily Mirror this afternoon, a deal has now been reached between Bruce and Newcastle.

The agreement, though, is set to see the Wednesday boss paid the least of any Premier League manager next season.

Bruce will reportedly take home £20,000-per-week, or around £1 million-pear-year.

Incredibly, this comes despite Rafael Benitez having earned 6 times as much during his stint at St. James’ Park.

The Mirror’s report continues:

‘Mike Ashley has worked out an incentive-driven salary which will see Bruce collect an extra payment for every place Newcastle finish above the bottom three.’
