& # 39; I was thinking of deposing him, but it would not give us any subs & # 39 ;: Steve Bruce reveals Newcastle frontman Joelinton although the pain in Wolves's tie in the midst of the club's injury crisis
- Steve Bruce revealed Newcastle star Joelinton played by the pain of Wolves
- The £ 40m striker had a groin problem before half time but played on
- Newcastle was stripped by an injury crisis with 13 players currently out
- Paul Dummett and Dwight Gayle had gone to the draw Molineux
Steve Bruce revealed that Joelinton played through the pain barrier as Newcastle & # 39; s injury crisis deepened at Wolves
The Newcastle manager admitted that the £ 40 million striker would normally have been replaced after a groin problem before the break.
Joelinton went further, considering that the team is limited to the bone and struggling to 13 players. Paul Dummett and Dwight Gayle were both already running away with hamstring injuries.
& # 39; Jo should have left, & # 39; Bruce said. & # 39; He wanted to stay, I thought about taking it off, but it would leave us in the subs & # 39;
Newcastle ended their previous Premier League match against Leicester with 10 men after four players broke down in 12 minutes
Bruce is ready for discussions with his medical staff to find out why many of his team are gone, but refuses to throw money at short-term solutions in the January window.
& # 39; It is the same medical staff as last year – nothing has changed, & Bruce said. & # 39; We go deep and ask a few questions. Is there a reason why? I have my own ideas, it's the number of games we play.
& # 39; People are tired and although we have had a week off, they are still in trouble. I will not just sign bodies. If there is someone who will help us, we will try to act. Hopefully we will get something back in the coming weeks. & # 39;
