Bruce laments Black Cats sacking


Steve Bruce remains convinced he could have resurrected Sunderland from their slump if allowed time.

Bruce was sacked at the end of November after two and a half years in charge following a poor start to the season in which Sunderland won just two of their opening 13 matches.

"It is never easy when you get the sack, especially when it's a public sacking of course," Bruce told Sky Sports News. "It is unfortunate the way it went and I am disappointed we didn't get a bit longer, but all managers are going to say that I suppose. We finished 10th last year, which was a decent finish for them and we made many, many changes."
