Birmingham City manager Steve Bruce has admitted to doubts over his future at St Andrew's, with a takeover of the club close at hand. Hong Kong business magnate Carson Yeung is poised to take control of the Blues and Bruce has confirmed that talks over a new contract have been put on hold as a result. He said: "I have made it clear that I would like to stay and see it through, but I am also wary that a new broom always wants to sweep clean. "I've been patient enough. I've waited four months as it is. "If the decision is for a change, then I will abide by that too. I am a big boy. We will know more by the weekend I guess. "I understand that when someone new comes in, spending a lot of money to take over the club, they might have their own ideas. "I believe I remain the right man for this job. I have been here coming up to six years and there is something about Birmingham that's got me inside and keeps endearing me after all this time. "I agreed my contract with the existing board in May. Now we're in the process of a takeover, things have been put on hold. "I'm waiting and by Friday, I believe, there will be some decision on it."
