After his 27-month spell at St. James’ Park, Steve Bruce is no longer in charge of Newcastle United.

The club’s new owners have higher expectations and they are ready to make huge investments to see the desired result.

The appointment of The Magpies’ new boss is the first step in their plans, and now some names have already been linked with the team.

Let’s take a look at six possible candidates that could take the managerial job at Newcastle United, taking into consideration Vbet odds.

5. Steven Gerrard

Ex-Liverpool man and current Rangers boss has been eyed by various clubs, with both Newcastle and Aston Villa being on the list.

Since being appointed as Glasgow team’s new boss, Gerrard’s stats were truly impressive. His side’s European record was 24 wins, 15 draws, and only six defeats in 45 games.

While Gerrard could be considered as a future Liverpool boss, one of the world’s best former midfielders could try his best in the Premier League earlier, joining the Magpies.

4. Lucien Favre

Reports in Germany link the Borussia Dortmund boss with a job at Newcastle United.

Under the 63-year-old manager, Hertha Berlin advanced their position from 12th to fourth within two seasons, Borussia Monchengladbach avoided relegation in Bundesliga, while Dortmund secured second place behind German giants Bayern Munich.

These results show that Favre’s arrival could have a positive effect on the team, though he would need some transfers in order to make his plans work properly.

Favre has already expressed his desire to make a move to St. James’ Park, according to Northern Echo.
