Bruce gloomy on future

08 Oct 2007 - 08:18:22

Birmingham City boss Steve Bruce has admitted that he expects to be axed if Hong King businessman Carson Yeung completes his takeover of the club.

The long-running saga of the proposed takeover could come to a conclusion soon, but Bruce accepts that his six-year tenure at St Andrew's may be coming to an end.

Speaking after his side's 2-1 defeat at Blackburn Rovers he said: "I think he (Yeung) has set some sort of deadline, but it needs resolving.

"When there's instability at the top, as we all know, it filters down. So the sooner (it's all over) the better.

"If it's going to happen, let it happen. But as to when it does, you will have to ask Mr (David) Sullivan or Ms (Karren) Brady on that score.

"I have to say it doesn't look very good (for me) at the moment.

"I found out off Mr Sullivan on Friday night that the vibes coming back from the Chinese consortium were negative. I know where I stand, that's for sure.

"I've 20 months (on my contract) to run, so I'll just get on with it and see when the new people do eventually take over exactly what plans they've got.

"But I don't think at the moment there's any talk of a further contract. There's effectively a block. There we go, I'll accept that."
