Bradley speaks on how he brought Salah, Elneny, Hegazi into Egypt squad
Former Egypt national team manager Bob Bradley has talked about Mohamed Salah and Elneny and how he brought them into the national team.

Bradley has been announced as the first manager of MLS expansion team Los Angeles FC on Saturday and he talked about his experiences from all around the world and which one impacted him the most.

He mentioned his experience from coaching the Egyptian national team, saying: “I went to Egypt and the league stopped, and you are trying to figure out how to build a new team, and I am watching Arab Contractors and I see these two young players, Salah and Elneny,” Bradley told ESPN.

“The coach who had them in the U-20s was Diaa El-Sayed, who was my assistant at the national team, so we brought Salah, Elneny, and Hegazi, who now joined West Brom, into the national team in front of 90 million Egyptians, Salah became a hero,” he added.

Bradley was appointed as the Egyptian team manager in October 2011, guiding the Pharaohs to win all their six world cup qualifying matches in the first round, before losing to Ghana 7-3 on aggregate in the final round as Egypt failed to qualify for the 2014 world cup in Brazil.
