Steve Bruce has insisted landing the Newcastle manager's job was never his dream.

The 48-year-old, who took over at Sunderland earlier this week, has twice been in the frame for the position at St James' Park, firstly after Sir Bobby Robson's departure in 2004 and then when his successor, Graeme Souness, made way 18 months later.

He told the Sunderland Echo: "Managing Newcastle has never been my dream as a boss. I'm in football management now and I look for the right job more than anything else."

He added: "And this opportunity at Sunderland has got everything I want - the infrastructure, the fan-base, an ambitious chairman and an ambitious new owner.

"I don't need anything else - I've got everything here. Everything you look for as an ambitious manager is here at Sunderland.

"It's a big club with a big history, a long tradition, and the potential to really go places.

"All the off-field components are there, and we need to build a team now to really take things forward."
