Newcastle have confirmed that U23s manager Neil Redfearn has departed the club, and for some supporters that is good news.
The youth team has not enjoyed the most successful time of late with just three wins in 10 Premier League 2 Division 2 games in 2019/20, causing a few to cast doubt over Redfearn’s suitability for the role.
Along with negative results, there was allegedly a clash of personalities with others at the club, namely his assistant Liam Bramley, and it is believed that is what prompted his decisive action.
Newcastle have refused to comment on the reasons why he has chosen to leave, leading some fans to criticise the club, with others hopeful that Steve Bruce and Mike Ashley will follow him out of the door.
Redfearn only took up the position in the summer and it is perhaps a little worrying that personality clashes have occurred, though with some fans happy to see him go it is fair to say there is a mixed response from the fanbase.
Hopefully Bruce will walk out next.
