Former England legend Stuart Pearce is the latest name to be linked to the vacant Manager’s position at Bristol City according to the Bristol Post.
The 53 year old has been out of work since being sacked by Nottingham Forest just under a year ago and is the bookmakers’ favourite for the job with the former England Under 21s Coach keen to get back into football management.
As a player, Pearce enjoyed a glittering career in which he made well over 800 senior career appearances including 78 appearances for his country. The former centre half is best known for spending twelve years at Nottingham Forest, a period in which he Captained the side. Pearce was a player who would always wear his heart on his sleeve and never backed out of a challenge.
After his playing career ended, Pearce became a Coach at Manchester City and was appointed Manager in 2005 after Kevin Keegan’s sacking. Pearce managed the club for just over two years before being sacked at the end of the 2006/2007 season.
Pearce has managed internationally with England Under 21s and led the Great Britain Football Team at London 2012 prior to his appointment as Nottingham Forest Manager.
Bristol City sacked Manager Steve Cotterill last week after two years in charge at Ashton Gate.
