Paulo Fonseca is the favorite to beat Newcastle United

Paulo Fonseca is the favorite to beat Newcastle United.

Foreign journalists agree that Paulo Fonseca is the main candidate to become the new coach of Newcastle United. The Portuguese becomes the first coach of the “new” Newcastle, recently managed by an investment fund from Saudi Arabia.

Almost from the start of their Newcastle era, it was said that the new owners wanted to change their coach. We didn’t have to wait long for the changes – current manager Steve Bruce left the job on October 20. Thus, the Englishman worked in Newcastle for more than two years.

Discussions about who could become the new Newcastle coach immediately began in the media. The plans of the new owners were ambitious – the names of the currently unemployed Zinedine Zidane or Brendan Rodgers of Leicester City appeared. However, it looks like Paulo Fonseca, who is recently with Roma, will eventually become Team Magpie. Previously, the Portuguese led Shakhtar Donetsk or Braga.

Fonseca came close to joining the Premier League early this summer when he appeared to be the favorite to take over Spurs. In the end, the club presidents from London chose his compatriot – Nuno Espirito Santo.
