Bruce is delighted for David Moyes after he succeeded Ferguson as Manchester United manager.
He told the Daily Mail: "It'll only be strange for us all when the season kicks off. It still didn't register when I watched the Community Shield. I genuinely wish Moysey the best of luck and we wish Fergie a great retirement. It's fantastic.
"There's a big shift in challenges, there's new managers back in, we're all delighted to see Mourinho back, because we need people like that, people who are a little bit different. Changes at Man City, change all round. Let's hope it's for the better."
