Wigan Athletic - Bruce Just Loves His Job

Wigan Athletic - Bruce Just Loves His Job

Wigan Athletic boss Steve Bruce is delighted with his relationship with Latics chairman Dave Whelan and he feels lucky to have such a good employer in these crazy times

Bruce told reporters:

'I must have the ideal chairman to work for, Dave Whelan is English, is a football person and wants his team to do well.

'He never interferes in what I do at all and I think I'm the envy of a lot of managers.

'When I speak to other club managers, they crave to just be left alone to do their job.

'If you fail doing it your way, that's fine - you know what the consequences will be, so in that respect I'm very lucky.

'Which manager in their own right wouldn't want a say in a club's policy on transfers?

'You have to be responsible for transfers, responsible for the players you put out on the pitch to try to win matches.

'It works differently on the Continent, but that isn't the right way to do things over here.'


Bruce thinks that all the money flooding in to the Premier League is putting too much pressure on managers and he feels that investors should keep their noses out and let the manager manage, he continued:

'What happened on transfer deadline day was unbelievable, and we're all wondering where it will stop.

'The Premier League is becoming a playground for the rich. It is quite staggering.

'It has a lot going for it - for example the best players in the world are here.

'But some of the stuff which is knocking around at the moment because of all the money is both pretty scary and also laughable at times.

'A manager's job carries enough pressure and limelight which has to be dealt with, but if they are going to be undermined, what is the point of having a manager?

'You should pay a manager and give him the chance to run the club that's what I'm allowed to do here.'
