Steve Bruce Asked His Assistants ‘Shall We F**k Off Now?’ After Newcastle’s 1-0 Win Against West Ham
Steve Bruce hilariously poked fun at the difficult challenge lying in wait for him at Newcastle.
The former Sunderland and Sheffield Wednesday boss, 58, succeeded Rafa Benitez on Wednesday and has flown out to watch his new side on their pre-season tour.
But Bruce was unable to manage his side from the dugout in their Premier League Asia Trophy clash with West Ham due to visa problems.
Instead, the Magpies boss watched on from the stands as Yoshinori Muto's first-half strike sealed a 1-0 victory against the Hammers in China.
And once the full-time whistle had blown Bruce couldn't help but have a little bit of a laugh with his assistants.
Footage has started to make the rounds on social media of Bruce apparently asking his assistants "Shall we f**k off now?"

Bruce was in the UK on Wednesday as Newcastle were thrashed 4-0 at the hands of Wolves in the Asia Trophy.
But he does believe that he's the right man to lead Newcastle next season, despite significant backlash from fans.
According to Bruce, the opportunity to manage Newcastle was an offer he couldn't turn down.
"My mum would have burst into tears," he explained.
"She would have been so proud. My dad would have said, 'Are you sure you know what you're doing, Son?'
"For all the family I've still got in the North East, I am sure they will be as proud as punch.
"For any Geordie, if you can't play for Newcastle, then to get back and manage them is really something special.
"No matter how difficult, no matter how much s**t I'm going to have to deal with, I had to have a crack at it."
In the hours after Bruce's appointment, bookies made him the odds-on favourite for the first Premier League manager to be sacked.
Where will Newcastle finish in the league next season?
