Aston Villa have named former Hull City and Birmingham
City boss Steve Bruce as their new manager.
Former Manchester United captain Bruce, 55, who left Hull
in July, succeeds Roberto di Matteo, who was sacked on 3
October, at Villa Park. He takes over Villa who are 19th
in the Championship table. His first game in charge is at home to local rivals Wolves on
Saturday. Bruce will become the sixth man to pick the Villa team inside
the last 12 months.
