Steve Bruce Explains Why He Left Hull City – Former Hull City manager Steve Bruce has revealed he resigned for the club’s sake.
Bruce, who led the team back to the Premier League after a one year absence, wrote a letter to the club’s fans explaining his decision.
“It was with a heavy heart that I ended my time as Hull City manager on Friday. The four years I spent at the club were among the happiest times of my managerial career.”
“The first promotion out of the Championship, survival in the Premier League and then the FA Cup final and European football were all fantastic times for me, my staff and my players. The relegation back to the Championship was hard to take but we all stuck together to win promotion through the play-off final at Wembley in May.”
“My biggest regret is having to walk away but it was a decision I had to make for the sake of the club. The last 12 months have been very tough and it felt like the right step for the club to move forward in a different direction and with someone else in charge.”
“I desperately wanted to make it work this summer and be a Premier League manager again but, sadly, it wasn’t to be.”
