The Newcastle United dressing room does not care if the takeover has made them the most 'hated' team in the Premier League.
That is the view of Javier Manquillo, who insists his Magpies' team-mates are not getting 'carried away' with reports of Steve Bruce's imminent dismissal.
United's Premier League rivals have united in opposition to the long-awaited approval of the Â£300m sale to the consortium backed by Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund.
An emergency meeting was held in the aftermath of the deal where the 19 other top-flight clubs demanded answers from the league's chief executive Richard Masters and chairman Gary Hoffman.
News broke on Monday of another meeting where a controversial vote was passed to block sponsorship deals from which Newcastle stand to benefit from following their takeover.
However, Manquillo insists the critics and opponents will not stop everyone associated with Newcastle from enjoying a takeover which allows fans to dare to dream after the Mike Ashley era.
The full-back told the Daily Telegraph: â€œI understand that this operation will arouse antipathy or hatred. But we are not going to stop enjoying this period because of this.â€
The move against the Magpies comes as speculation continues to intensify over Bruce's future at St James' Park, with the new owners expected to dismiss the 60-year-old.
The head coach was surprisingly allowed to oversee his 1,000th match in management on Sunday, but familiar flaws saw United slump to yet another defeat as their winless start to the campaign continues.
Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard are among the names linked as Bruce's potential replacement, although the bookmakers now consider Lucien Favre and Eddie Howe as the frontrunners.
But despite vast sections of the fanbase calling for Bruce's sacking, Manquillo insists the squad stand firmly behind their head coach.
He added: â€œWe are all professionals, Steve the first.
â€œHe knows that the situation is not easy and even more so now that there is talk of his dismissal, but we are not getting carried away by the rumours.
â€œHeâ€™s working normally, he wants to start to get back on track and weâ€™ll see what happens in the end.
â€œI have read that there is talk of Gerrard and Lampard, but our manager now is Steve Bruce and we support him without hesitation.â€
