Nicklas Bendtner was a happy man, when he was presented in Sunderland's striped shirt Thursday. But the Dane's smile might stiffen again soon. The manager who signed Bendtner on a season long loan deal, his former manager at Birmingham Steve Bruce, is in fact in danger of being fired in Sunderland, according to several British newspapers.
The rumours claim that Sunderland owner, Ellis Short, have considered sacking Bruce after the club's defeat to Chelsea Saturday. But it's not true, according to sources at the club.
They have told Sky Sports, that Steve Bruce is not in danger of being fired. There are no one questioning his position.
With four matches played in the Premier League Sunderland occupies a 16th space with just two points.
