MLS Cup winner Bob Bradley has been offered a new job in Vancouver to the tune of $1 million per season.
After a much ballyhooed run with Egypt came crashing to a close against Ghana, Bradley was dismissed as head coach. The Egyptian National Team was portrayed by many as a source of unifying national pride in the midst of a revolution.
Although Bradley is one of the winningest coaches in MLS history, he drew sharp, and somewhat irrational, criticism as USMNT manager. It is doubtful that Bradley will find many of those former critics in Vancouver should he accept the offer.
As reported by Soccerly.com:
News of the Whitecaps’ interest in Bradley was first revealed on a local soccer podcast ten days ago and Vancouver’s Province newspaper confirmed on Thursday that the Whitecaps had indeed spoken with the recently fired Egypt boss last weekend.
The Whitecaps have been clear from the start that a key component for the man to take over at the helm is the need to have MLS experience as either a manager or a player and Bradley certainly has a wealth of the former, with 11 years of Major League Soccer managerial experience already under his belt.
This is the only confirmed offer that Bob Bradley has, the New Jersey native could be a good selection for NYCFC.
It would be relatively light duty during his son Michael’s World Cup competition, assuming that their widely assumed play for Jason Kreis doesn’t come through.
Bradley is usually at the top of lists for MLS managerial replacements for good reason, among available candidates his track record is inarguable.
