Ferdinand names the coach Newcastle should replace Bruce with
The Magpies were taken over on Thursday by an affluent Saudi-led consortium, who anticipate taking the club to the highest point of English and European football.
One of the first concerns for the new owners is acquiring another football manager with reports asserting they might sack Steve Bruce sooner or in the not so distant future.
Conte, who left Inter Milan in the summer, is accessible and Ferdinand figures he would be an extraordinary contender to take over at Newcastle.
Ferdinand told his Vibe with Five YouTube channel that it is troublesome. Of individuals that are accessible right now, Conte must be up there on the club’s rundown.
On certain occasions, rather in certain circumstances, it is always about the cash. The cash talks these days also.
“It’s difficult. Of people that are available at the moment, Conte’s got to be up there on your list.
“Sometimes it’s about the money. The money talks nowadays as well.”
Rio Ferdinand added that he thinks Conte is the one that is capable of being used for the accomplishment of this purpose.
“I think Conte. He’s the one that’s available. Can you get him? Push your luck.”
On Bruce conceivably losing his employment, Ferdinand proceeded:
“This shows you the brutality of football. New owners come in and the manager just gets the sack straight away, no sentiment, no feeling behind it. ‘He isn’t what we want, see you later’.
“He’ll get paid up, don’t worry about that. Goodnight Vienna. When people ask players to be loyal and all this stuff, the word loyal in football isn’t here anymore. It’s not about that.
“This is part of the game. Steve Bruce will know that. He’s not a mug, he will know. He will be sitting there waiting for the phone call – if he’s not had it already – to say, ‘Thank you very much but you’re not the guy anymore’.
“I’m positive that will happen. I don’t see him being there or being the short-term or long-term person they want in place. They’ve got plans now to go on and do crazy stuff there and I don’t think they see Steve Bruce, with respect, as the guy to do that for them.”
