Bannan has faith in Bruce
Barry Bannan is sure Steve Bruce is the perfect man to lead Sheffield Wednesday in the Championship next season.
The experienced Bruce took up the position in charge of the Owls at the start of February and oversaw a big improvement in results as they made a late bid for the play-offs.
Wednesday only lost three games in the Championship under the former Aston Villa boss and Bannan believes he will continue to get the club moving in the right direction next season with a promotion challenge the ultimate aim.
‘We ran out of games last season to make the top six, but in the time the manager has been here we lost just three games,’ he said on the club’s website.
‘It’s a hard league so I think that was a brilliant run.
I definitely think we have the right man for the job.
‘There have been a lot of players leave in the summer and there will be change at the club but with this gaffer, he knows everything about the league and I think we will be even better next year.’
