Ghanaian winger, Christian Atsu has been told by Newcastle United head coach Steve Bruce to find a new club as soon as possible.
Atsu warmed the bench when Newcastle United played West Ham United in the Premier League opener.
Asked why he benched the Ghanaian winger and other experienced players, Steve Bruce told the BBC Newcastle that, “I like Christian – the same goes for [Yoshinori] Muto – trains every day, works tirelessly, [and is]a good professional,” Bruce told the BBC Newcastle.
“But in a situation where, are they going to play enough? There has to come a time when they go and play football,” he added.
“The same goes for [Henri] Saivet. Henri has been around the place since I’ve been here. We try to treat him with respect and he trains every day and is a good pro,” he continued.
“Saivet, Atsu, Muto, [Achraf] Lazaar, [Rolando] Aarons – they need to find a new home and try to progress their careers again.”
Christian Atsu joined Newcastle United on permanent basis three seasons ago and has capped 73 matches, scoring 3 goals.
