Wigan Athletic boss Steve Bruce has come out and quashed any speculation that he is in line for the managers job at Premier League rivals Newcastle United
Newspaper speculation has been linking Bruce with the Geordie job all season, but the Newcastle born former Manchester United player insists he has no intention of going back to the North East and he also says he finds it all a little distasteful with the current state of health of Joe Kinnear the man in charge at St. James` Park, Bruce told The Wigan Observer:
`Because I`m a Geordie every time the managerial situation at Newcastle is mentioned I`m always in there`
‘I think it`s a little bit disrespectful when their manager is going through what he is going through right now`
‘I`m very, very happy here at Wigan and I have got a terrific job`
‘Theres nothing in it, I`m very happy here, that`s all I can say`
So there you have it, Bruce is happy, he has a terrific job here at the Latics, sounds like he doesn`t want any grief.
