Bradley on verge of Egypt appointment

[Posted 15 Sep 2011]
[By Sports Chief Editor]
Bob Bradley is favoured to succeed Hassan Shehata as Egypt coach

The Egypt Football Association has revealed that former USA coach Bob Bradley is on the verge of being appointed as Pharaohs' coach following a series of interviews with shortlisted candidates.

EFA spokesman, Azmy Megahed, said Bradley will arrive in Cairo this weekend to finalise the deal.

"All is good. Bradley will be here on Sunday to sign the contract," Megahed told The Associated Press.

Shortlisted candidates included former Ghana coach Milovan Rajevac, but it appears that Bradley made the grade. Milo's challenge with language might have done him any favours with the Egyptians during interview.

Milo also appears to be someone who has developed a reputation of being a coach with a mercenary attitude. Affter successfully leading The Black Stars at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, the Serbian dumped the Ghana FA for a rich Saudi Arabia club, whom he dumped after a few months in charge to ake over the job of national team coach of Qatar.

It is therefore not surprising that Bradley was preferred over the normadic Milo.

Bradley himself, left his position as USA coach after four years, and the country's soccer federation felt a need for change and appointed former Germany coach Jurgen Klinsman in his place. 

The Pharaohs coaching job was left vacant following the resignation of Hassan Shehata who left after failing to guide Egypt to the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations finals, and the Pharaohs are sure to finish bottom of Group G, with only two points after five outings.

Egypt are trying to recover from the embarassment and shame of failing to defend the title that they have won three times in a row. The EFA intends to ensure that it has all its ducks in a row when the Brazil 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifiers begin in June 2012. 

Egypt's senior Pharaohs will face fast improving Guinea and in-form Zimbabwe in their World Cup qualifying group. Contests involving these three nations have been very close in tthe past, and nothing is expected to change when qualifiers commence in June.
