Ex-Sheff Utd manager Bruce named as new Wednesday boss

Date published: Wednesday 2nd January 2019 2:54

Sheffield Wednesday have named Steve Bruce as the club’s new manager in his first job since leaving Aston Villa earlier this season.

The 58-year-old, whose first managerial job was with the Owls’ city rivals Sheffield United in 1998, will take over the role on February 1.

Long-time coaching associates Steve Agnew and Stephen Clemence will take charge of the Sky Bet Championship team in the meantime.

Bruce succeeds Jos Luhukay following the Dutchman’s sacking last month, which came after less than a year in charge.

Lee Bullen has been in caretaker charge since Luhukay’s departure, guiding Wednesday to two victories and two draws.

The Owls are currently 16th in the table, 10 points clear of relegation trouble.
