Klinsmann hails Bradley appointment


Jurgen Klinsmann has welcomed the appointment of Bob Bradley as Swansea manager.

Bradley is the Premier League's first American coach after he was named as Francesco Guidolin's successor at the Liberty Stadium on Monday on the back of the club's poor start to the season - the Swans are without a win since the opening day of the season and currently sit 17th in the Premier League table.

Klinsmann succeeded Bradley as coach of the United States in 2011 and believes he deserves the opportunity to manage in the Premier League.

"It is fantastic that finally the ownership group in the Premier League is giving trust to an American coach. There are plenty of good American coaches that can coach overseas, absolutely no doubt about it," Klinsmann said.

After spending five years with the United States, Bradley enjoyed spells in Egypt, Norway and France before moving to French side Le Havre last season, missing out on promotion to Ligue 1 by a single goal.

"In Bob's case, he's so experienced. He went the tough route, even places after coaching the national team have been impressive. He didn't shy away from different cultures, different countries, different languages and different approaches."

Conor McGregor will fight Eddie Alvarez for the lightweight belt at UFC 205 in New York on November 12 live on the eir Sport pack. The eir Sport pack is free to all eir broadband customers. To learn more about setting sport free visit www.eir.ie/sport .
