The Newcastle side head into Friday night’s Premier League clash with Leeds without a win in five games in all competitions this season, and with Bruce having found himself the target of disillusioned fans during Saturday’s 4-1 defeat at Manchester United.

But when asked if he had spoken to those above him about his future, Steve Bruce told his pre-match press conference: “No, but it’s not all about me.

“I’m here to only do what I think is best for the club, and that is manage it as best I can and keep us moving along. It’s for other people to answer that. I will continue to do my best – I’m never going to walk away from the challenge of it, that’s for sure – so you’re asking the wrong person.”

Asked about the jeers at Old Trafford, Bruce added: “Look, it’s always difficult. I’d be sick if I said I quite enjoyed it. That’s what it is, so I have to accept that results haven’t been good enough.

“What the disappointment was, was we played very, very well at a difficult place last week, as difficult as it was ever going to get and we played very, very well and didn’t get anything out of the game, which is the frustrating thing.”
