‘He is had sufficient of Guy Town!’: Steve Bruce hijacks Kevin De Bruyne interview and jokes about transfer

‘He’s had enough of Manchester City and he’s going to come to play for Newcastle!’: Steve Bruce hijacks Kevin De Bruyne interview and jokes Belgian star is moving to St James’ Park

  • Kevin De Bruyne starred for Manchester City in their 2-0 win at Newcastle 
  • The Belgian midfielder scored from the spot in Sunday’s FA Cup quarter-final
  • Steve Bruce joked that De Bruyne could join Newcastle in hijacked interview
  • De Bruyne was performing club media duties when Bruce interrupted the chat

 Steve Bruce jokingly claimed Kevin De Bruyne is going to sign for Newcastle United after the Magpies boss hijacked the Belgian’s post-match interview on Sunday.

De Bruyne scored the opening goal from the penalty spot as Manchester City beat Newcastle 2-0 in their FA Cup quarter-final tie at St James’ Park.

And while De Bruyne was doing club media duties after the game, Bruce tried to force the Belgian midfielder into a Newcastle shirt, presumably against his will.

Bruce jokingly put his arm around De Bruyne and said: ‘He’s going to stay here and come here. That’s an exclusive coming out of Newcastle tonight.

‘He’s had enough of Manchester City and he’s going to come to play for Newcastle!’

De Bruyne sent Newcastle goalkeeper Karl Darlow the wrong way from 12 yards after 37 minutes to send Manchester City on their way to an FA Cup semi-final tie against Arsenal.

Raheem Sterling netted a second goal midway through the second-half, just seconds after Magpies striker Dwight Gayle missed an open goal from six yards out.

Before Bruce’s interjection, De Bruyne admitted that the chance leading to Gayle’s glaring miss was City’s only mistake of the game and that the visitors should have won by a more convincing margin.

The midfielder said: ‘I think we played really well today. We dominated the game and we were really good in possession, but also defensively our shape was good. 

‘Except for the one mistake we made in the second half, we played perfectly. We could have scored more.’ 

The result means Newcastle only have Premier League priorities between now and the end of the season, as they look to compete for a spot in the top-half of the table.

Manchester City, meanwhile, have little to play for in England’s top-flight as Liverpool were confirmed as Premier League champions on Thursday night.

In a post-match interview of his own, Bruce admitted that the gap between the Premier League’s top teams and the bottom sides is growing larger.

 Bruce said: ‘There’s becoming a bigger gap between the top and bottom of the Premier League and that gap is growing.

‘If you look at the FA Cup over the last 20 years, most of the big clubs go onto win. We weren’t quite good enough.’ 

Bruce’s chances of signing De Bruyne for next season, however, will be boosted if their £300million takeover from a Saudi-led consortium gets completed by the time the transfer window opens at the end of the 2019/20 season.
