Aston Villa have confirmed that Steve Bruce will continue as manager of the club, after speculation surrounding his future.
A statement released on Wednesday evening revealed that the 57-year-old manager and novelist met with the club’s owners this week to discuss their collective vision for the club’s future.
The short statement added that Bruce would continue with the full backing of new owners
“The new owners might want to have their own man in. All the indications are that this is not the case but until I get in front of them I won’t know. I hope they give me the opportunity but I wouldn’t be surprised if it isn’t going to be that way because, as we’ve seen many times, the new broom always sweeps clean.”
Rumours of Thierry Henry’s imminent arrival at @AVFCOfficial are disrespectful. In my view the right man, Steve Bruce is already at the club. We discuss that next on @talkSPORT
