Steve Bruce leaves Hull City THREE WEEKS before the start of the Premier League season – talkSPORT sources
Steve Bruce has left his role as manager of Hull City, talkSPORT understands.
The 55-year-old, who led the Tigers back to the Premier League with Championship play-off success in May, departs the Yorkshire club just three weeks before their season opener against champions Leicester City.
Bruce did not take training on Friday and he has handed in his resignation at the KC Stadium.
He was interviewed for the England manager’s job recently, but he looks set to be pipped to the role as the FA close in on Sam Allardyce’s appointment.
The former Sunderland, Wigan and Birmingham boss leaves after four years, following his appointment in June 2012, and reports suggest he was disillusioned with the lack of additions made to his injury-hit squad ahead of the new campaign.
