‘Watch this space,’ says Steve Bruce’s son in response to Man Utd interim boss links.
The son of Manchester United icon Steve Bruce has hinted that his father may succeed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Steve Bruce has been told that if Manchester United is looking for a club legend to take over as interim manager until the end of the season, he would be willing to help. Alex, the son of the former defender, says that fans should ‘watch this space’ regarding the 60-year-possible old’s comeback to Old Trafford following the resignation of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Solskjaer was fired on Sunday after a poor run of play that culminated in a 4-1 thrashing at the hands of Watford the day before.
United have started looking for a replacement for the Norwegian, and it has been suggested that they may hire a caretaker manager before recruiting an elite coach in the summer.
Bruce has been mentioned as a possible interim manager after leaving Newcastle last month following the eye-watering £305 million Saudi-backed takeover.
Despite suggestions that former Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino would be willing to leave PSG for Old Trafford, speculation linking Bruce to the position has grown after his son told fans that he would be happy to assist the Red Devils.
Bruce Jnr, who played for Hull City under his father, has stressed that United must appoint a ‘world-class’ coach in the long run – seemingly ruling out his father – but has hinted that his expertise may be useful.
“Who knows?” says the speaker. Everyone knows he has a fantastic working connection with the club. “I’m sure he’d be there to help if they needed him,” Bruce Jnr told Sky Sports.
“However, I believe it is critical that Manchester United find the appropriate next manager.”
“I believe they require the services of a world-class, outstanding management.” If they can’t find someone at this time, I’m sure he’d be willing to help.
“In the long run, it’s critical that the hierarchy gets the next manager right and gives him or her enough time to strengthen the club and the roster and get Manchester United to where they need to be.”
“Well, there have been a few names thrown around for if they do go down the temporary route,” he said when asked if there was merit in having a well-known, former United player as an interim manager.
