Richard Keys reckons the choice for the next Manchester United manager is a no-brainer – Steve Bruce.
The former Sky Sports presenter has written a blog on his website, tipping the current Hull City manager for the hot seat at Old Trafford.
Forget Jose Mourinho, Ryan Giggs and Mauricio Pochettino, Keys insists that Brucey is the right man to restore the Red Devils to their rightful place at the top of English football.
More amazing than even tipping Bruce for the job, Keys goes on to suggest that his managerial CV of coaching at the likes of Birmingham, Hull and Sunderland is “arguably better” than Sir Alex Ferguson’s glittering array of achievements.
Keys writes: “He’s seen the lot in a very successful managerial career.
“The highs of promotion and the devastation of relegation. He had Arsene Wenger and Arsenal rattled in the FA Cup final.
“How he initially got Hull into the Premier League is beyond me, but he’s about to do it again. He’s done it with Birmingham twice.
“That’s like Fergie winning the title – arguably better, because he was operating with limited budgets.”
We’re not trying to have a go at Bruce’s career or achievements – he’s a perfectly decent manager with some notable achievements to date.
But managing Manchester United after Louis van Gaal? We should really make sure Richard has been feeling OK recently.
And better than Fergie? He won 13 Premier League titles and an historic treble!
After Andy Gray’s impressive linguistic skills last week, we’re seriously sad that those two are no longer on our screens in Britain.
