Bob Bradley -

Former Egyptian national team manager Bob Bradley has been announced as the first manager of MLS expansion team Los Angeles FC.

Bob Bradley, Egyptian NT coach from 2011-2013 had many managerial stints across Europe after leaving the Egypt post. Most notably, he managed Premier League team Swansea City for 85 days.

Bradley managed Chicago Fire from 1998-2002 before moving on to manage the Metrostars (now NY Red Bulls) from 2003-2005. Following a brief stint with Chivas USA, he was appointed United States U23 manager before being promoted to the senior team in 2006, managing for five years.

He was appointed Egypt manager in 2011 and almost steared the Pharaohs to their first World Cup since 1990. Through political turmoil, he was foiled by a heavy 6-1 loss to Ghana in the first leg of the final stage of qualifiers.
