'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Fergie - Bruce is the man

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson heaped praise on Wigan Athletic boss Steve Bruce for the way he turned Latics round this season and got them playing good football along the way.

Talking about Bruce Fergie said:

'He's done a great job, fantastic

'He's got Wigan playing the right way and they deserve to stay up.

'I think the point Wigan got at Chelsea helped us win the league.

'It was a tough one all right for us. For most of the game we played well, but there were some nervous moments.'

Bruce revealed that ultimately he has his sights set firmly on taking the reigns at Old Trafford one day, he said:

'Whether you're playing or managing you want to get to the top of your profession

'You're always striving to be good and if you're going to do this job then why not set your aspirations to go to the very top.

'If I can, or if I get the opportunity then who knows?

'Eight months ago I would have been lucky to have got the Scunthorpe job!'

I'd think he would need to stay and show what he can do again, his time at Blues was mixed at best and before that he moved about a great deal. Not sure he is 'the' man to take over from Sir Alex, but then again, someone one day will have to. Not sure I'd like to fill Sir Chewalots boots, although I'd not mind the wage packet!

I hope he stays with us as long as Jewell did, you need stability at a club to help it move, though I do belioeve Eric Black is also a major reason why we ended the season so strong...you cant beat a good double act
