The video will start in 8 Cancel Newcastle United legend Chris Waddle believes Steve Bruce will be deemed a success if he matches Rafa Benitez and keeps United in the Premier League.

"I don’t think anyone ever thought Steve Bruce would come in and be competing for trophies and the European places.
