Sam Allardyce believes Steve Bruce is a better fit at Newcastle than he would have been, but insisted he was “chuffed” by the club’s interest in him.

Allardyce revealed back in June that he was initially under consideration to replace Rafael Benitez at St James’ Park but says he rejected the chance to return to the role, which he previously held between 2007 and 2008.

Steve Bruce was eventually appointed as Newcastle’s new manager and Allardyce believes the Magpies went for the right man.
