Manchester United vs Newcastle: What has been said?

Newcastle boss Steve Bruce: “I was always quietly confident that, having done what I’ve done, I could handle the job. It’s stood me in good stead and it needed to.

“Maybe 14 years ago, it might have been too big for me – although I might have been a bit more favourable back then.

“The experience I’ve had has certainly helped, but I’m not going to get carried away just because I’ve had a few results.”
