Its not that long ago that former Wigan Athletic manager Steve Bruce was in the papers crying about other managers tactics trying to unsettle the talented squad he's assembled at that great football club Sunderland.
Kenwynne Jones, Darren Bent, Jordan Henderson and whoever else he was on about blahde, blahde blah, well we all know that Mr Bruce isn't overt to using the media to get at players, Lee Cattermole, Titus Bramble and his failed attempt with Maynor Figueroa all spring to mind, now the hypocritical Newcastle United supporter is at it again.
Clearly chasing Latics star Charles N'Zogbia Bruce is using his imitable style, speaking to the local rag up in the North East, Bruce, under the headline Charles N'Zogbia Keen On SAFC Move, says: "I've told him how great Sunderland are - he knows how good a club it is.
"Every time we speak, we speak about football and he knows how highly I think about the club. He knows everything about it."
Not content with stirring it up himself, Bruce has got former Latics player Titus Bramble involved: "I have spoken to Charles a few times this summer," Bramble said
"When I spoke to him last year he said it'd be a fantastic move for him. Whether it materialises for him or not I don't know - but you never know in football. I think the players would love him here, the fans would love him to be here - but it's out of our hands.
"We want as many fantastic players as we can here, he's a fantastic player and he'd be great for this club."
All a bit too close to the bone, take a look at the original article here
