Swansea flop Bob Bradley returns to management after being revealed in cringeworthy Los Angeles FC video

BOB BRADLEY has returned to management with new Major League Soccer Franchise Los Angeles FC.

The former Swansea City coach – the only American to manage in the Premier League – was revealed as the new manager in a cringeworthy video released on social media.

The video saw Bradley, wearing a cap and team tracksuit, slowly lift his head to reveal his face.

LA FC, who can count comedy mega-star Will Ferrell and NBA legend Magic Johnson among their investors, will join MLS next season.

Bradley lasted just 11 games in the Premier League last season, after taking over at the Liberty from Francesco Guidolin.

The 59-year-old former US national tram coach won only two of his matches and lost seven.

He was sacked after just 85 days, the second shortest reign in the division’s 25-year history.

The cringeworthy video was met with laughs on social media – as well as plenty of criticism from Swans fans and references to Soccer AM parody Brad Bobley.

But Bradley, who has a strong reputation Stateside, said he can’t wait to get started in California.

He told ESPN: “In all the years that I’ve worked, I’ve really valued the opportunity to work with talented, intelligent people, where there’s a real vision of something.

“In this case, for me, with all of the different experiences that I’ve had in the game, my ideas, my vision on a club, what kind of football to play, how that club has to have an identity and be something that people can feel part of — those are things that mean so much to me.

“And I love going into every situation and trying to take my ideas and create something that’s different and special.

“So as I worked through things here, I just felt that that part of it was so exciting.”
