Steve Bruce feared sack after getting Hull City relegated


Hull boss Steve Bruce has admitted he was lucky not to lose his job following the club's relegation from the Barclays Premier League.

The Tigers' stay in the top flight ended last month as they finished 18th in the table, with a goalless home draw against Bruce's former club Manchester United not enough to keep them up.

Bruce, who has been in charge at Hull City since 2012, told the Daily Mail: "I am fortunate because I am sure most managers would have paid the penalty after relegation. That is how football is nowadays.

"I had a chat with the owner Assem Allam and of course I wanted to know if he still wanted me to carry on. But there was another question too – whether I had the enthusiasm to fight in the Championship again against all the big clubs there.

"In the end, I thought to myself, why not if the owner still wants me to carry on, which he does. He is a very good man. I enjoy working for him so I am going to try and take him back to the Premier League.

"We've won promotion together before and reached an FA Cup final but this will be like starting all over again."
