Steve Bruce Interested In Manchester United Job

Published

on

Steve Bruce would be interested in becoming Manchester United’s new head coach on an interim basis, according to the experienced manager’s son Alex Bruce.

The Red Devils sacked Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on Sunday and revealed that they would be looking to appoint a new boss on an interim basis for the remainder of the 2021-22 campaign.

Steve Bruce, who recently left Newcastle United, has been linked with the position his son has said that the 60-year-old would be open to the role at Old Trafford.

“Who knows? I think everyone knows he has a great relationship with the club. If they needed him, I’m sure he would be there to help,” Alex Bruce told Sky Sports News.

“I think they need to get a world-class, elite manager. If they can’t find someone at this present time, then I’m sure he would be up for it.

“In terms of the long-term, it’s important that the hierarchy get the next manager right and give whoever that person is time to improve the team and time to improve the squad and put Manchester United where they need to be.

“Dad carries a lot of experience. He knows a lot about the club. One thing you can say about the people there at the moment is that they don’t carry a lot of experience. Whether they want someone to come in and give them a hand for the time being if they don’t make that elite appointment, we’ll just have to watch this space.”

AFCON 2021: Ola Aina, Okoye Responsible For Super Eagles Loss To Tunisia, Says Okocha

Published

on

Former Super Eagles captain, Austin Jay Jay Okocha, has blamed two players for the elimination of Nigeria from the ongoing 2021 Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON, in Cameroon by Tunisia.

Okocha said Super Eagles goalkeeper, Maduka Okoye and right-back, Ola Aina, should be held responsible for Tunisia’s match-winning goal against Augustine Eguavoen’s men.

Recall that Tunisia had last Sunday sent the Super Eagles packing from the AFCON in the Round of 16, thanks to Youssef Msakni’s second-half goal.

But Okocha believes Okoye should have saved Msakni’s long-range shot, while Aina would have fouled the Tunisia player before he took the shot.

“You expect when things go the wrong way that the goalkeeper might save the day but I thought he went a bit early to his right side and then it was difficult for him to adjust and make that save,” Okocha told SuperSport.

“It was a well taken shot there by the Tunisian and luckily for them that decided the game.”

On Aina, Okocha added: “You buy a foul, do something, stop the momentum of the game and let your players recover, but he made it easier for them.”

Former Super Eagles’ Chief Coach, Christian Chukwu, has urged the Super Eagles to move on with future national assignments after crashing out of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).

“It is clear that our AFCON trophy chase is over. Let us come home, take stock and plan for our world cup qualifying encounter with Ghana.

“Judging from my personal experience as a player and coach, the boys brought in their best and did their best in the AFCON competition.

“They fought gallantly in each match they played.

“I am not happy with the red card given to Iwobi in the last match played by the Super Eagles as it should be a mere warning. He did not deserve a card at all,” he said.
