Newcastle United kicked off their new Premier League campaign with a 1-0 loss to Arsenal on Sunday.

He sent this classy message to Bruce, the players and the fans just hours before the game against Arsenal:
“At the start of the Premier League season, I would like to wish Steve Bruce, all the players and the fans good luck.”
Here is how some Newcastle fans reacted to the Spaniard’s gesture on Twitter:

While a lot of fans are still mad at owner Mike Ashley for how he treated Benitez, and at Bruce for taking charge having once managed Sunderland, there was a commendable turn out as SJP against the Gunners.
Newcastle have a lot to prove this season, and it will be interesting to see how they fare after the changes that took place over the summer.
