Bruce praise for Ferguson before head-to-head

Sunderland manager Steve Bruce has paid tribute to former manager Sir Alex Ferguson before Bruce travels back to Old Trafford this weekend, Sunderland Echo reports.

Ferguson makes it 25 years in charge of United on Sunday and it is fitting that one of his first players in Bruce is the man who sits in the opposing dugout for the weekend’s fixture. Bruce will be one of the guests at a gala dinner to commemorate Ferguson at Old Trafford Cricket Club tonight and he has praised the manager who helped him to glory.

Bruce said: ‘It’s hard to describe what he’s like until you’ve worked for him. But he sets huge demands and tests you to make sure you’re strong enough to play for him. If you are and you pass the test, then he knows you can play.

‘In my opinion, he’s the best there’s ever been. I know you can compare him to the Shankley’s and Clough’s, but look at what he’s done and achieved. To be still doing it after 25 years is quite unbelievable’, Bruce added.
