Steve Bruce linked with speedy return to football

Former Aston Villa boss Steve Bruce has been linked with a speedy return to football, just weeks after being fired by the Birmingham side.

Bruce who led his side to the Championship play-offs last season was dismissed at the start of October after presiding over a run of 9 games without a win, and was replaced at Villa Park by Dean Smith, assisted by John Terry.

However, it now looks like his spell out of the game may be limited following reports that fellow championship side Reading are considering bringing in the 57-year old to replace their existing manager Paul Clement.

The former Swansea manager and Real Madrid coach has only been at the Madejski Stadium since March when he succeeded Jaap Stam. However, he is now under pressure with his team in the bottom three, and his team two points from safety, having won just 3 times in the 15 matches in charge.

Andy is an exiled English football fan living in Cyprus. He loves all sports but football is his abiding passion, and he still has dreams every now and then about scoring the winning goal in a Wembley Cup Final, even though his playing days are long gone. He follows most major leagues, across Europe at least, and has a favoured team in each. When he’s not watching, listening, reading or downloading podcasts about football, he spend his time worrying about his beloved Arsenal.
