Sacked last December with the club faltering at the wrong end of the division, he took over at Oxford United in March and led them to safety before seeing them to second spot in League One so far this term.

After the Robins parted ways with Nigel Pearson last month, Manning was hunted down and takes over, along with assistant Chris Hogg, at Ashton Gate with the side sitting in the top half of the Championship.

Manning said: “This is a terrific opportunity and one that I’m really looking forward to. If you look at the vision of the club and where they want to get to and how they want to get there I think there is really good fit and alignment with my journey and where I want to get to.

“We are custodians and you have to respect and understand the past and the culture of the area that you’ve moved and leave the club in a better state.

“We’ll be doing our upmost in terms of the day to day in putting really strong processes in place, getting emotionally invested in what we do and having that passion, that drive, that hunger to improve everything.”
