Managing a club like Aston Villa is a big task and current boss Steve Bruce should be aware of the risks while in charge. But in recent times, Bruce has reportedly been approached for the managerial role at Leeds United.
Villa made it all the way to the playoff finals against Fulham but unfortunately, they lost to the Cottagers at Wembley. Former Chelsea star John Terry has left the club and his absence will cause a major void in their defence. Hence, they need to find somebody to replace him pronto.
However, Villa recently underwent tax issues which involved chief executive Keith Wyness, who has been suspended. The club are in a bad shape right now, meaning they might have to offload a few players to balance the books.
In such a situation, Bruce must stay back with the club. He has been there since 2016, meaning he must be determined them back to the Premier League. But that will not be an easy task, especially if there are financial issues.
Now, some transfer targets will have to be signed for free. There are numerous players already released by clubs who could add to the squad but the only issue would be their wages.
As each day passes by, more players will be released by their respective clubs. Villa need to keep an eye on who is being released every single day. They could pick up an absolute steal if they keep their eyes peeled.
Hence, although Leeds are approaching Steve Bruce with a job, the Villa manager must stay where he is. It goes without saying that the Villans will struggle next season but a manager like Bruce will be able to turn things around for them.
Their Premier League hopes might be slipping away but given the circumstances, it is imperative for Bruce to stay back with them. Furthermore, he could use his connections to bring in the right players. After spending close to two years with the club, Bruce must continue his work and help them push for a spot in the top-flight once more.
