Ian Holloway thinks it is only a matter of time before Steve Bruce gets considered for the top managerial jobs after winning promotion again with Hull.
The 1-0 Championship play-off final victory over Sheffield Wednesday means Bruce has now won promotion to the Premier League a record four times – twice with Hull and twice with Birmingham.
“It’s an absolutely exceptional record,” said Sky Sports Football League pundit and former Blackpool boss Holloway.
“I know they were talking about Manchester United and who was going to get it, and I know Jose Mourinho did, but seriously, why doesn’t someone like Bruce get considered?
“It’s only a matter of time before people like Steve get appreciated at the top level of this game and just given a chance.”
