‘ Neil Warnock on Steve Bruce and the Aston Villa job ‘


Friday 25th November 2016


Neil Warnock: “I think with Steve and myself I think you get what you see. I was disappointed I did not get a chance with Villa in the summer if I’m honest, because i thought it would have been ideal to sort everything out. And that is why i am not surprised at all Steve has gone in and done really well.”

“I am not saying we are similar types, but I think we have the same philosophies regarding management. We are not bothered about being in the Chamionship. He does not think he is going to be a Premier League manager, he just gets on with whatever he does 100 per cent.”

“Personally I thought he should have been England manager at the time. I just thought with his experience playing wise and what he had done and his age and his enthusiasm. I thought it was an ideal position for him in the summer.
I know Gareth has done a good job. I am surprised they have not spoken to Steve again.”

Neil Warnock:

“They wanted bigger names I think, they took the lad and that is how it goes. I must admit I did smile at a few of the signings and the money they spent.
But I think Steve is the right one now. He knows its a massive club he will be looking forward to it. We have had some right battles over the year, he knows he is in for a tough game on Saturday.
They have got a lot of quality players there but I think we have a few as well.”
