New speculation is circulating about who the new manager of Newcastle United will be . The Magpies management is reportedly now considering Steven Gerrard to be their new tactician.
Newcastle has officially become a new rich team. After a successful Saudi Arabian consortium became the majority owner of Newcastle’s shares.
The Arab consortium is reportedly looking to make big changes at Newcastle. One of them is to change coaches so that they can transform into a top club.
The Daily Mail claims that Newcastle’s management already have a new candidate for the post. The figure of Steven Gerrard is reported to be a candidate for the new coach of the Magpies.
The main consideration for Newcastle hiring Gerrard is his track record as a coach.
Gerrard is still classified as a young coach. But he managed to bring Rangers to win the Scottish league after they were short of the title for a long time.
Not to mention Gerrard has rich experience in the EPL while still playing, so he is considered suitable to be the new coach of Newcastle.
The report claims that Gerrard is not the first choice of Newcastle management.
At first they wanted to hire Antonio Conte. But the Italian coach is still not interested in taking the job.

Newcastle are preparing to enter a new era after getting a funding of 300 million pounds. Recently , Steven Gerrard’s name was mentioned as a candidate for a new coach.
A few days ago, the Premier League officially announced the purchase of Newcastle by the Prince of Saudi Arabia. Reportedly, Newcastle immediately rose to become the Premier League’s richest club through this purchase.
Since then, several top players have been linked with Newcastle. Top level coaches are also said to be ready to replace Steve Bruce as coach.
Newcastle’s drastic change also caught the attention of Kenny Dalglish, former Newcastle coach. He spoke about the possibility of Gerrard coaching Newcastle. What did he say?
Not surprised, but…
Newcastle is believed to be entering a period of major change. There will be a change of coach and the purchase of top players.
Dalglish realized that. However, according to him the current coach of Newcastle, Steve Bruce, should be fully appreciated.
However, the first thing that needs to be said is, now Steve Bruce is still manager of the club. We need to respect that,” Dalglish told Goal.
I would be surprised if the Rangers manager’s name [Gerrard] was not named as one of the candidates.”
Right candidate, but
Dalglish knows very well that at this time the Newcastle fans are very excited. He also agreed that Gerrard was considered a strong candidate. However, he also knows that Gerrard still has a job as Rangers coach.
“Could they recruit Gerrard as coach? He’s been working amazingly as Rangers. He won his first league title after 10 years, considering that Celtic were aiming for the title 10 years in a row,” continued Dalglish.
“He’s also made good strides in European competition. That’s why he’s been linked with Newcastle United. However, at the moment Steven will not pay attention to what is happening at St James’ Park,” he concluded.
