The appointment of Lucien Favre as Newcastle’s new manager could bode trouble for Allan Saint-Maximin.
If Steve Bruce is fired, Lucien Favre is one of the frontrunners to replace him.
Allan Saint-Maximin, who played for the Swiss at Nice, may be concerned about Newcastle’s prospective appointment of Lucien Favre. If Steve Bruce’s new ownership decides to break company with him, the Magpies may be looking for a new head coach.
At St James’ Park, Bruce is a divisive figure, and the takeover has spurred calls for his dismissal.
The former Manchester United defender has been in charge of a poor start to the Premier League season. Newcastle is 19th in the table, and one of six clubs without a single win.
Last Thursday, controversial owner Mike Ashley sold the club to a company led by Amanda Staveley.
The Saudi Public Investment Fund (PIF) owns an 80% share in the club, which was purchased for £305 million. PIF is separate from the Saudi Arabian state, according to the Premier League.
The rumors that Bruce will be fired have grown louder, little over two years after he took over for Rafael Benitez.
Former Borussia Dortmund coach Lucien Favre has been mentioned as a possible replacement, but that could spell trouble for star midfielder Saint-Maximin.
The winger irritated Favre during his first training session after joining Nice from Monaco, according to a source in the dressing room who spoke to Nice-Matin.
According to reports, Favre urged that the Nice board sell Saint-Maximin to its Ligue 1 opponents.
Before joining Newcastle in 2019, the exciting 24-year-old forward played 38 appearances for Favre and another 36 for Patrick Vieira.
After Staveley promised fans that Newcastle would develop a ‘world-class’ squad, the £16 million man might be joined by several more big-money acquisitions.
In an interview with Sky Sports, she remarked, “We are in the market to compete for world-class players.”
“We have big plans, and I’m hoping it will be a game changer for Newcastle United.
“However, if you don’t build the infrastructure around that world-class player and don’t have a team capable of playing with him, you’ll be stuck.”
She continued, ” “The training ground is in terrible shape and requires a significant amount of investment.
“Fortunately, Financial Fair Play does not limit us in this area.
“Having amazing players is pointless. “Brinkwire Summary News “..
