The club’s ex-goalkeeper said that Bruce would be ‘fantastic’ for the job.

Schmeichel claimed; “I just like the idea, if it is an interim, get somebody who knows the club. Get somebody who is known by the club as well.

“Somebody like Steve Bruce, that would be fantastic.”

He also said: “I would love to have somebody who comes in now to put pressure on the players.

“A new voice, get them out there performing. Without making massive changes in style, or system.


‘You have to take small steps, you can’t just jump straight in and say we are going to play a pressing game.

‘You can’t do that, the first thing you have to do is give confidence to everybody in the team.”

Bruce was sacked last month from his last role as Newcastle United manager.

The once club captain has said that his is ‘very keen’ to take over the interim position as the Red Devils may look to fill the position permanently next summer.

The ex-centre-back played over 300 times for Manchester United between 1987 and 1996.

Schmeichel also said that he would take the role himself.

He said: “Of course I would do it. I would do anything for that club.

“I think Ronaldo would DEFINITELY listen to a goalkeeper.”
