Sunderland boss Bruce caught in another race row

London, Mar 25 (ANI): Argentina defender Marcos Angeleri has accused Sunderland boss Steve Bruce of not liking him because he is not English.

Bruce has been caught up in another race storm - involving one of his own players.

The revelation comes two months after Aston Villa manager Gerard Houllier had accused Bruce of racism over the Darren Bent transfer row.

“The boss doesn’t talk to me, he doesn’t even say hello to me when he sees me. I think he doesn’t like me because I’m not English,” The Sun quoted Angeleri, as saying.

He told ESPN Radio: “Steve Bruce is not a nice person at all. He is a little unpleasant. I have played just a few minutes in Sunderland since my arrival. I want to play, that’s my job. That’s why I’m not happy here in Sunderland. I don’t understand why I’m not playing. The boss is too defensive.”

Angeleri has made two League appearances, both as substitute. His one start came in the FA Cup home defeat to Notts County in January.

In January, Houllier claimed Bruce had attacked him over the signing of Bent because he was an “easy target” as he was a “foreign manager”. (ANI)
