What Sir Alex Ferguson told Newcastle boss Steve Bruce ahead of Tottenham win

Newcastle beat all odds to down Tottenham Hotspurs on Sunday the result coming on a back of some intense pressure from manager Steve Bruce.

Consecutive defeats to Arsenal and Norwich had done little to lighten the mood around St James’ Park with people questioning Bruce appointment following the departure of Rafa Benitez.

And after silencing the doubters by pulling off a remarkable win at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, Bruce admitted that he had some help from his former manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

Bruce played under the Scot at Manchester United for nine years, becoming somewhat of a legend at Old Trafford and the former centre-back has gone on to manage several clubs in the top flight with differing levels of success.

Desperate for Advice

Desperate for advice from the 77-year-old, he was simply told to “keep his head down and get on with it” this as reported by the Mirror.

Despite enjoying just, a 20 per cent possession at White Hart Lane, the Toon came away from the capital with all three points against a team many are tipping to challenge for the title.

Attention for Bruce and Newcastle now shifts to the Leicester game on Tuesday in the Carabao Cup, before welcoming Watford to the northeast on Saturday.
