It has been reported that QPR boss Harry Redknapp believes Hull City manager Steve Bruce should’ve been considered for the Manchester United job.
Redknapp makes the claim in A Man Walks On To a Pitch, which is being serialised in the Daily Mail.
“Louis van Gaal couldn’t have done a better job with Hull City than Steve Bruce did last year. Yet did his heroics in the League and FA Cup create even a ripple at Old Trafford? Was Steve, a great competitor and wonderful player for United, even considered for the Manchester United job?
“OK, a few times in his career it hasn’t worked out but that would be true of Van Gaal, too, if he had spent his managerial life at clubs like Sheffield United, Huddersfield Town or Hull.
“I don’t understand why owners suddenly lost faith in British managers. Unless Frank Lampard or John Terry gets the job, do you really see Roman Abramovich appointing an Englishman to Chelsea? Or even a British manager? Maybe Brendan Rodgers might come into the frame, but would he leave Liverpool for Stamford Bridge?
“Foreign players, foreign coaches, foreign owners.”
