Bob Bradley signs as coach of Egypt national team
CAIRO (AP) - Former United States coach Bob Bradley signed a contract to take over the Egypt national team on Saturday, charged with reviving the fortunes of a team that recently failed to qualify for the African Cup of Nations.
Longtime coach Hassan Shehata stepped down in June after Egypt collected two points from four African Cup qualifiers and a subsequent loss to Sierra Leone confirmed Egypt’s failure to qualify for a tournament it has won on the last three occasions.
The record seven-time winners will not compete in the continental championship for the first time in 33 years.
Bradley was fired as U.S. coach in July after more than four years in charge and replaced by Jurgen Klinsmann.
Bradley’s assistant hasn’t been hired, but the Egyptian Football Association said it would be a local coach.
Bradley led the U.S. to the last 16 of the World Cup last year and signed a contract extension until 2014 as a result. But even as Bradley was given a new deal, there were concerns the team had stagnated under his leadership and a Gold Cup loss at home to Mexico in June was critical in his departure.
