Steve Bruce reveals that he has been assured his position as Sunderland manager is safe.

Steve Bruce has revealed that the Sunderland chairman has assured him of the security of his position as manager.

Club owner Ellis Short recently replaced Niall Quinn as chairman in a bid to play a more hands-on role at the Stadium of Light.

Quinn had been a strong supporter of Bruce as manager and his departure raised doubts about the security of Bruce's job.

Bruce has been reassured by the new chairman that his position is safe, although the former Manchester United defender admits that Sunderland need some positive results.

"[Short] reassured me that everything's okay," said Bruce.

"I need a few results, it's as simple as that. Niall will still be in touch with the owner, I will still be in touch with the owner.

"Whether there will be patience, I don't know. That I can't answer you."

Sunderland take on Arsenal at the Emirates on Sunday afternoon.
