As a kid, Alex Bruce travelled to Wembley to see his father, Manchester United legend Steve, lift the FA Cup. The experience sparked a dream, and one day he too would grace the Wembley turf, although his final with Hull City – a five-goal thriller against Arsenal – ended in defeat.
I caught up with defensive stalwart Alex at his current club Kilmarnock, where he described what it’s like being treated as the boss’ son, how the Championship is the most physically demanding league in the world, and exactly why he has so much admiration for Rooney, Ronaldo and Giggs.
Alex is great talking about how his youth career faltered at Man U – and was then resurrected at Blackburn Rovers, and the sheer joy of achieving promotion to the Premier League with Hull; an especially sweet experience because his beloved dad was the manager.
