Steve Bruce’s net worth after boss’ 1000th game with Newcastle job on the line

Newcastle United's manager Steve Bruce reached his 1000th game in management over the weekend as his Magpies lost to Tottenham Hotspurs.

And with 1000 games under his belt, Bruce's net worth is reported to be around the £40million mark.

On top of that, the under-pressure Newcastle gaffer could be entitled to a pay-off of around £8million, according to The Telegraph, should Newcastle decide to sack him.

Bruce enjoyed an illustrious playing career, and he spent most of his playing days at the heart of the Manchester United defence.

The 60-year-old has since made his money in management with a career that has spanned over two decades.

Bruce's future has been up in the air after Newcastle were taken over by the PIF Group, backed by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, earlier this month.

And after defeat to Spurs, Bruce called for clarity on his future.

"That’s for other people to decide, I will wait until they see fit and we will see what they have to say," Bruce said after the match.

"You had better ask someone else that one.

"That’s what it needs. Every football club needs clarity. Right from the top right the way through to everything that makes a football club the way it is. Now the new owners have been very respectful."

Newcastle flew out of the blocks on Sunday afternoon, and Callum Wilson nodded the Toon Army ahead in the third minute.
