Steve Bruce to quit the dugout?by Jack Kitson / 26 July 2016, 10:23Tweet
If the old grind of the rumour mill is be listened to then Steve Bruce may have managed his final football game.
The Daily Star Sport are reporting that Bruce is contemplating whether to bring the curtains down on his managerial career after leaving Hull City last week.
Bruce surprisingly parted ways with the Tigers - after four years at the helm - citing a difficult last 12 months as his main reason for leaving in an open letter to supporters.
Bruce will always be remembered fondly at Hull, having led the club up to the Premier League not once but twice, while he also came agonisingly close to winning the Tigers their first ever FA Cup back in 2014, only to lose a two goal lead against Arsenal.
In total Bruce has taken charge of seven clubs (including Wigan twice) - and overseen a whopping 784 games - since venturing into the managerial dugout back in 1998.
The 55-year-old developed a reputation as a master of promotion - leading both Birmingham and Hull up to the top-flight, two times apiece. However, if speculation is to be believed then Bruce, who was interviewed for the England job last week, may now have managed his last match.
