Steve Bruce has said he is “not everybody’s cup of tea” as he takes over as the new Newcastle manager.

The former Sheffield Wednesday boss replaced Rafael Benitez but some fans have since threatened to boycott the club.

“Whoever was going to sit in this seat was going to find it difficult,” said Bruce. “However, I’m confident enough that with my experience and the people I’ve brought with me, that we’ll continue to take the club forward.”
