Bruce: Give British managers a chance

Published Add your comment

Wigan boss Steve Bruce remains hopeful British managers will get the chance to take a job with one of England's 'big four' but he admits the chances remain slim.

Bruce has done remarkably well in lifting the Latics from relegation contenders to seventh place in the Barclays Premier League during his 15-month reign at the club. However, he knows taking charge of Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea or Arsenal is an entirely different prospect.

"It (foreign managers) seems to be the way forward. Would Manchester United now go for the manager of Aberdeen?" he said, in reference to Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford. "I sincerely hope the British managers get a chance because it is difficult for any of us to win anything."

He added: "The last manager to get a crack at a big cub was David Moyes at Everton and look at the fantastic job he has done.

"I'm sure any of us wouldn't mind a crack at managing that lot (at Chelsea).

"When you look at them - Nicolas Anelka, Didier Drogba, Frank Lampard and John Terry - they are a fantastic bunch of players."
