Bob Bradley’s long-rumored courtship with Norwegian first-division side Stabaek appears to be ready to reach a positive conclusion, with the club set to name its new manager on Friday.
According to reports out of Norway, Bradley looks set to take the Stabaek job, which would make him the first American to manage in a European first division league.
Bradley is fresh off of coaching Egypt through the African World Cup qualifying cycle, which saw the team fall to Ghana in the qualifying playoffs after an unbeaten run through qualifying.
The former U.S. Men’s National Team head coach returns to club coaching for the first time since leaving his job as Chivas USA head coach to take over the U.S. Men’s national Team in 2007. Prior to that, Bradley had coaching stints with the Chicago Fire (winning an MLS Cup in 1998) and the New York/New Jersey MetroStars.
What do you think of the move? Glad to see Bradley moving to Europe? See him eventually heading to a bigger league like the English Premier League, or perhaps the League Championship?
