Sunderland boss Bruce big fan of Arsenal rival Wenger: Sort of!

Sunderland boss Steve Bruce says he's a big fan of Arsenal counterpart Arsene Wenger - sort of!

Geordie Bruce, who faces Wenger's Arsenal today, believes the magic worked by the Frenchman with the Gunners has convinced club chairmen that foreign is best.

Bruce said: "It used to be boring, boring Arsenal who won 1-0. But then this guy came in and other chairmen thought 'We need a foreign manager too'.

"He is a genius. The way they play is fantastic. They are a great team to watch with great individual players.

"For me, when Arsenal come to town it is THE big occasion, they really have that bit of extra class."
