Sunderland boss Bruce always grateful to Ferguson over signing him for Man Utd

Sunderland boss Steve Bruce says he'll always be grateful to Manchester United counterpart Sir Alex Ferguson.

Ferguson signed Bruce from out of the old Second Division when he was with Norwich City.

Bruce told Absolute Radio: "Yeah, he used to bark a lot at me, he used to bark at myself and every one of us. I mean, the biggest thing I can say is that he brought me there, he brought me there and made me captain of one of the biggest clubs in the world, and for that I'll always be grateful.

"He was a wonderful manager to work for, had us all in the palm of his hand, and has proved to be arguably the best manager there's been, and certainly to work under him and see how he works I can understand how he's done it."
