Sunderland boss Bruce not interested in football talkback

Sunderland boss Steve Bruce admits he tunes out football talkback.

Bruce has closed his ears to intense criticism by listening to Radio 2 rather than tuning into the football chat on 5 Live and local stations in the north-east.

"I don't listen to it [5 Live]," said Sunderland's manager whose struggling side hope to win their first Premier League game for three months at Arsenal tomorrow.

"I've learnt you have to have Radio 2 on in the car. I like Chris Evans, who is a mate of mine and I wake up to, and Steve Wright. Otherwise I've found if you listen to them [football phone-ins and discussions] it is a distraction."
