Bob Bradley in Egypt

Former USA and Egypt manager has been announced as the manager of Ligue 2 side Le Havre.

The 57-year-old American has joined the French side after spending two years with Norwegian side Stabaek, ending last season in third place of Tippeligaen, the country’s top division. The finish secured his side’s qualification to the Europa League, and he was named manager of the season in Norway.

“Becoming head coach of the HAC, ’s oldest football club, is a new challenge in my career,” Bob Bradley told Le Havre’s official website.

Bob Bradley had a previous managing spell with the Egyptian national team but was sacked from the job after Egypt’s elimination from qualifying to the 2014 World Cup, following a 3-7 loss on aggregate to Ghana in the final round.

The French side, which are considered the oldest football club in France, were bought last summer by American executive Vincent Volpe, the president of an oil and energy company, who is expected to be behind this appointment.

The club are currently ranked 4th in the Ligue 2 table with 23 points after 14 rounds, just 4 points away from league leaders Metz.
