Wigan manager Steve Bruce believes footballers "have the best job in the world" and dismissed FIFA president Sepp Blatter´s comments about them being like slaves.

Blatter was giving his opinion on the transfer saga surrounding Manchester United winger Cristiano Ronaldo - who is wanted by Real Madrid - and he likened Ronaldo´s situation to slavery, suggesting United were preventing him from leaving against his will.

Bruce, however, believes Blatter is wrong in speaking out about players´ contractual obligations, saying: "I don´t agree with Sepp Blatter´s comments on them being slaves because I believe they have the best job in the world. If they are slaves what the hell are the rest of us? They have got a good job."
