Bob Bradley is currently preparing for his first full season in charge of French side Le Havre, but the former U.S. Men’s National Team coach has been named as an unlikely candidate for a Premier League job.
Following the departure of Steve Bruce, Hull City is in the market for a new manager, and the Hull Daily Mail is reporting that Bradley is one of the candidates for the job. Joining Bradley on the list of candidates are more traditional options in former Everton boss Roberto Martinez and Birmingham City manager Gary Rowett.
The Premier League club has reportedly opened talks with Martinez in recent days with the hope of appointing a manager with time remaining to make moves in the transfer window.
A move for Bradley would be a surprising one given all things involved. The American coach has never managed in England at any level and remains a newcomer within the French second division after joining Le Havre last season. Prior to his move to the French club, Bradley found great success with Norwegian club Stabaek after previously taking charge of the Egyptian national team following his exit from the USMNT program.
Under Bradley, Le Havre narrowly missed out on promotion to Ligue 1, finishing fourth in last season’s Ligue 2 race. The club opens league play on Friday against US Orléans.
What do you think of the report? Any chance Bradley moves to England?
