Scott Bradley: Those two years in Egypt were rough
Scott Bradely, who played baseball for the Seattle Mariners, New York Yankees and Cincinnati Reds, said that he was so worried about his brother after what happened in Port Said in 2012.
“Those two years in Egypt were rough,” Scott Bradley told The Sun.
“We were so worried. The game in Port Said in 2012 where 74 people were killed, half the team were part of the new revolutionists.
“There were guys who knew people who had been killed. Others knew who had done the killing. He had to try and get to the World Cup?
“Those are pressures of a different kind that very few coaches have had to deal with,” Scott concluded.
It’s worth noting that the current Swansea City manager took charge of the Egyptian national team in 2011, leading them to the final round of the 2014 World Cup qualifiers, before losing to Ghana 7-3 on aggregate.
