Report – Newcastle To Hire Ex-Lyon Manager


Le Progres is reporting that former Lyon manager Bruno Genesio is soon to be appointed as the next Newcastle United manager.

The Sun’s Alan Nixon, who broke the news yesterday that Mike Ashley sent over £4m to Sheffield Wednesday owner Dejphon Chansiri, today has reported that the offer has yet to be accepted.

So maybe Ashley has decided to move on to other targets if the progress for Steve Bruce has in fact stalled.

The Chronicle have an excellent write up of Bruno Genesio who Newcastle were linked with earlier this year.

This would be a stunning turn of events which would be most welcome at this point in time.

Genesio managed Lyon from 2015-2019 with a 55% win percentage and 1.8 points per match average. We think he would be a more exciting appointment than Steve Bruce at the moment.

This is what the report in Le Progres says in its entirety:

Bruno Genesio, who coached Olympique Lyonnais from January 2016 to May 2019, could sign up with Newcastle on a four-year contract. This club in the North of England is about to be sold to a billionaire (who comes from Dubai) having close relations with the owner of Manchester City.

And Bruno Genesio aroused the interest of this entity in England. Newcastle finished 13th in the last championship and ended his collaboration with Spaniard Rafael Benitez last May.

He is in England

This legendary club, with a speaker to dream. The stadium of Saint James Park is regularly attracted by the French.

We remember that David Ginola enlightened beautiful evenings from 1995 to 1997. While the former Lyonnais Claudio Caçapa lived there two unforgettable seasons from 2007 to 2009.

Bruno Genesio is currently in this city, agitated sometimes by the frost, and humidity, but passionate about football to an inestimable point.

The challenge is there for the former OL coach. The “Premier League” resumes on August 10, and if Lyon’s Bruno Genesio, engages, it will be immediately on the breach.

Bruno Genesio, who was on vacation, returned yesterday to Lyon, before joining Newcastle, to conclude the formalization of a new and beautiful experience.

This is certainly interesting news which we hope is true. It is interesting that they mention the club is about to be sold. Maybe there have been some stunning advancements in the sale to BZG that have led to this new development.

Though the mention of Claudio Cacapa is not quite how we recall. We kind of remember that Claudio Cacapa’s time on Tyneside was eminently forgettable.

Though the fact that we instantly remember that Portsmouth game may make his time here, in fact, unforgettable.

    So Bruno Genesio mysteriously leaves Lyon on April 14th, 3 days before BZG submit paperwork to Ashley?

    Coincidence??

    Probably!!

    But maybe there’s a slight hope that it’s something significant…

    The highlight of Caçapa’s two “unforgettable seasons” would surely have been getting dragged off after about 20 minutes in one match.

    The fat man probs needs Newcastle sale,he needs the money to buy the rest of SD shares as the rest of his empire is imploding if he owns 100% of SD then he throws the crap he has just bought to the receivers then at least he’s got something to hang onto.

    Well Tony and bills we can only hazard an uncomfortable guess at what part of your anatomy Mikey has a hold of but what do know by now is he has a tight grip. Or it could be that .. er .. other problem, I’m told there are preparations with soothing analgaesic properties that can bring relief….in the meantime perhaps to lift your mood and distract you from the pain, how about a sing-song?.join in when you recognise the words…

    It doesn’t matter whether it’s Bruce, Genesio, Pep or Temuri Ketsbaia.

    Whoever is appointed as manager under Ashley is irrelevant. They will only ever be operating as Ashley’s stooge.

    That said, Genesio over Bruce any day of the week.

    The mere mention of Caçapa just brings back awful memories of me being genuinely excited when we signed him as I thought he would become integral in our back four… We all get the odd wrong now and then..

    The ONLY reason I would support a Mike Ash man is if he was good enough for a new owner to keep on. Up to that point he can hire Jimmy Krankie makes nee odds.

    Fair play to chopra for getting some national attention on our clubs plight
    Even if the likes of Dubai Mickey have a pop at his demons for doing so, I think the rest of us fans appreciate his efforts

    Told this Bruno Genesio (former Lyon manager) to #NUFC is wide of the mark. Steve Bruce still very much the man for the job, but no timeframe on appointment. Still expected to happen this week, though.

    Everyone on the blog knows you’re full of shit, it’s all there in black n white and everyone can go back to read it.

    You’ve proved yourself wrong and now your looking for something to give yourself creadability, good luck with that.

    Ashley has more credibility on this blog than you.

    On the boycott, I respect the right of any supporter to boycott any game or games whatever their reasons.

    I support the team not the regime and as such I will continue going to games – whilst I understand that some fans may not agree with this I defend my right to take that position (I bet at least 40,000 other will as well).

    Re the Arsenal fans letter to Kroenke – I have no problem with any similar open letters against Ashley.

    My point was that I believe letters to the FA trying to claim Ashley has broken ownership rules will be a waste of time and stand no chance of being upheld.

    Re other anti-Ashley action…

    I think Ashley needs to be shamed on a national level, for example action being televised on prime time TV news.

    I think Jail’s/Boycott Arsenal’s idea of a protest march whilst at the same time raising money for charity is an idea definitely in the right direction.
