Former Newcastle United star Rob Lee believes Steve Bruce is the right man to take the Magpies forward, but he does feel that two issues at the club will threaten to hold him back.

They understood what it meant and I think Steve Bruce does as well.



Bruce took over the role at St James' Park this summer following the departure of Rafa Benitez, who allowed his contract to run out before moving to the Chinese Premier League to take over at Dalian Yifang.



The former Magpies' midfielder insists that Bruce must be allowed more time to make his mark, with the 53-year-old comparing the ex-Sheffield Wednesday manager to some Newcastle legends when describing what could stand Bruce in good stead.

"I think he's found himself in this situation because he has replaced Rafa Benitez.

Lee feels that Bruce was always going to land criticism after replacing the much-loved Benitez, but the Newcastle great does feel that some of the reactions have been unjust.

"Another reason that will lead to criticism of Bruce is the situation with the owner," Lee added.
