Raheel Sharif, the Commander-in-Chief of the Islamic Military Counter Terror Coalition (IMCTC), has not been appointed as Newcastle United’s manager

By

Claim: Former Army Chief Raheel Sharif appointed as Newcastle United Football Club’s new manager.

Fact: General (retired) Raheel Sharif has not been appointed the manager of Newcastle United Football Club.

Newcastle United Football Club was sold to Saudi Arabia’s sovereign wealth fund, the Public Investment Fund, on Thursday 7 October 2021.

Shortly afterwards, on 13 October, an infographic was posted to an Instagram page named Inflics stating, “The commander-in-chief of the Islamic Military Counter Terror Coalition (IMCTC) and former chief of army staff of Pakistan, Gen Raheel Sharif has been named as the new manager of Newcastle United football club.”

The Instagram account responsible for the post was likely misled by a satirical piece published on 8 October 2021 by “The Dependent,” a satirical offshoot of the Pakistani Newspaper Pakistan Today.

British news outlets have reported that Graeme Jones is the likely replacement for the club’s current manager Steve Bruce.

Conclusion: The Instagram account responsible for the post claiming that former Chief of Army Staff of Pakistan and current commander-in-chief of the Islamic Military Counter Terror Coalition Rachel Sharif has been appointed as the new manager of Newcastle United Football Club was likely misled by a satirical piece. General Raheel Sharif has not been appointed as the new manager of the club.
