Newcastle skipper Lascelles: Players welcome Bruce appointment

Newcastle United skipper Jamaal Lascelles says the players are looking forward to working under Steve Bruce.

The Englishman was announced as Rafa Benitez's replacement on Wednesday.

Speaking after a 4-0 loss to Wolves in China, Lascelles said: "We're all looking forward to it. We've been waiting for him to come in. There's been speculation and now it's confirmed, we're pleased and we're looking forward to it.

“He's a very well-known manager who's done well in the Premier League and the Championship.

“We've been working hard with Ben [Dawson] and Neil [Redfearn] – they've done a great job and the rest of the staff have helped us out as well.

“Now the manager has come in, we're really looking forward to it."
