Wayne Bridge is delighted to have kickstarted his Sunderland loan.
The on loan Manchester City defender joined on the final day of the January transfer window and made his first start for the club against Liverpool last weekend.
“I just think the manager has been really positive with everyone,” Bridge told SAFC TV.
“He likes to make everyone feel at home and doesn’t worry about mistakes.
“If we do make them, he just wants us to get on with it as long as we’re not making silly mistakes in our box or anything like that.
“He’s just so positive and that rubs off on the lads. We go out there really up for it and no-one holds back.”
