Richardson: Bruce right man for Sunderland

Kieran Richardson says Sunderland's players are fully behind manager Steve Bruce.

The England hopeful has no doubts Bruce will arrest the team's current slide.

"I've known him a long time," he said. "He's going through a bad patch at the moment but he has proved to be a top manager and he will get us through this. I have no doubt about that. I believe in him. The players here still have faith in the manager and the coaching staff."

Richardson also told the Guardian: "You would not want to be on the wrong end of a rollicking from either Roy Keane or Steve Bruce, believe me."
