Bruno Génésio won’t manage Newcastle, whose takeover is off

L’Équipe have spoken to super-agent Pini Zahavi who has confirmed this evening that French tactician Bruno Genesio will not become the next manager of Newcastle United.

Zahavi confirmed that the Emirati takeover project of the Magpies, headed up by Peter Kenyon, had the former Lyon man down as their primary choice of candidate, but   it appears that Mike Ashley no longer intends to sell and is set to remain in charge of Newcastle, as Michael Chopra has confirmed. The former striker was part of another project intending to purchase the club, with some Saudi Arabians.

Steve Bruce will take over at the Magpies – as for the future of Genesio, Zahavi added: “We will find something else for Bruno.”
