Aaron Stokes and Damian Spellman are pouring some cold water on the recent wildfire that was started with a French report that Bruno Genesio was due to be announced as the next Newcastle United Manager.
Aaron Stokes is a reporter from the area but works as a journalist for the Daily Star. This is what he tweeted earlier when the news of Genesio had just started to break.
Just spoken to a French source with ties to Bruno Genesio. He seemed just as confused as most #NUFC fans when asked about those Le Progres claims…

Press Association reporter Damian Spellman has also followed suit and just tweeted this.
Just had it knocked down by a second source.

It just goes to show you how poor of an appointment Steve Bruce is that this news was so exciting.
Here is some of the reaction to the initial report that Bruno Genesio was in line to become the next Newcastle manager.
So the reports MA has turned his attentions to Bruno genesio now that would be a great acquisition #nufc

Thought it was odd #NUFC hadn't revealed Bruce as manager if it was a 'done deal'. Scepticism levels through the roof but Bruno Genesio would be a manager that fits the bill. Would work under a DoF model if Ashley stays, is infinitely more appealing to buyers if he sells the club

odds for Bruno Génésio to be the next manager have plummeted. 3/1 on betfair lol #nufc

Despite the financial loss we'd suffer if #nufc employed Bruno Genesio instead of Bruce it would be absolute karma working its thang!
Karma always gets you #swfc

Going for Bruno Genesio would be bloody amazing! Just want it to true…as I believe #nufc would play great football with him as manager!

But ultimately it looks like this tweet may sum the reaction on Tyneside the best.
#NUFC fans hearing reports from France that Bruno Genesio is on Tyneside 'about to finalise a deal' to become their new boss, before Steve Bruce is inevitably announced hours later… pic.twitter.com/ihmGIbsYur
