Brendan Rodgers has received some criticism for his comments about British managers – but Steve Bruce feels he has a point.

The Leicester boss suggested he wouldn’t get the credit he deserved following the Foxes’ thrashing of Leeds on Monday night.

He told reporters after the 4-1 win at Elland Road: “Because I’m a British manager, we probably got lucky.

“That is the way it works for British managers in these games.”

talkSPORT’s Simon Jordan believes Rodgers is mistaken in his suggestions that British managers are discriminated against these days.

However, Bruce backed the former Liverpool and Celtic boss and believes Rodgers deserves more credit for the performance against Marcelo Bielsa’s side.

Newcastle boss Bruce told talkSPORT in his pre-match press conference: “Fair play to Brendan, I like that. I didn’t see that. This was after turning over the superstar Bielsa?”

Bruce also referred to comments made by Sam Allardyce on talkSPORT in November 2019 – the former England manager claiming he could have been in charge of Manchester United if he was called ‘Allardicio’.

Bruce added: “I’m not really interested in that any more, I’ve seen it all, worn the t-shirt. Big Sam said years ago he’d have been better being called ‘Allardicio’ didn’t he?

“Certainly I understand where Brendan is coming from because we have got some really, really talented British and English managers who unfortunately don’t get the chance that maybe they should do.

“And in other countries we don’t seem to get many jobs, however, the Premier League and the way it is, we try and get the best that are here so it is difficult for the British manager.”
