Bob Bradley is back in football and becomes the first American manager of MLS team Los Angeles FC in the next season.
In a phone interview, the American coach said, “I’m honored to come back to MLS and be the first coach at LAFC.
“I’ve had a chance to get a feel for the people at LAFC, the vision, the momentum that they’ve built out of the gate before they even start to play. And so the opportunity to now build a team that has a real identity, that connects with the city and the diversity and the energy, these are football things that are exciting to me.”
Bradley has also been once a subject of controversy after failure to save the English Premier club, Swansea City from the dangers of relegation during his time. After only 85 days, former Swans chief departed the club, winning only two domestic league games out of 11 (refer to Sportsbook for best betting odds).
However, this didn’t make him less of a candidate for LAFC. In fact, John Thorrington, the club’s executive vice president of soccer operations, revealed that Bradley was his prime option to fill the job.
“We couldn’t be happier that we could get Bob. He’s a very sought-after coach, not just here but all over the world.”
