Steve Bruce eyeing instant return to management after West Brom sacking.. and will add son Alex to backroom staff
SACKED West Brom boss Steve Bruce is itching for a managerial return.
The 62-year-old, who left West Brom last October, wants his son Alex as part of his backroom staff.
In January, Bruce had revealed that he was "bordering" on retiring from football management.
However, he is now keen on getting back to work.
Bruce has managed 11 clubs in the Premier League, Championship and League One.
He got both Birmingham City and Hull City promoted to the Prem on two occasions and also guided the latter to the FA Cup final in 2014.
Bruce's last stint in the top flight came at Newcastle, who he guided to 13th and 12th-placed finishes in his two full seasons in charge.
Should he get picked up by a club, he would like to bring his son, Alex, into the backroom staff.
He worked with his dad at the Baggies and also left the club at the same time.
The 38-year-old was linked with a backroom role at Middlesbrough but he hopes to emulate his dad and become a manager.
Since the pair left West Brom, the club have climbed back up the Championship table under the guidance of Carlos Corberán.
The Baggies now sit in ninth place, five points outside of the playoff spots.
