LAFC target Bob Bradley to take Norway national team job?

Expansion club may need to look elsewhere, again.

Los Angeles Football Club may or may not have Bob Bradley atop their list of coaching candidates, but the manager may be pulled away from the expansion club for the second time in a matter of months. Reports out of Norway on Friday claim Bradley, after reportedly meeting with the Norwegian FA this week, has been offered the Norwegian National Team head coaching position.

So far, there is no word that he has taken the job, and it is possible he could turn it down for another job, which could be the LAFC job. Bradley admitted to ESPN in the aftermath of his firing from Swansea City last month that he met with LAFC last summer, and “was impressed with their ideas.”

While Sports Illustrated’s Grant Wahl speculated this week that Bradley could once again turn to MLS and take the LAFC job as a new challenge after going through the Premier League wringer, the interest from the Norwegian FA could throw a spanner in the works on that particular plan. Bradley is well known in Norway, having taken club side Stabaek to Europa League qualifiers, despite the team being pegged to be one of the worst in the division.

And while a short tenure at Swansea was entirely predictable, the same cannot necessarily be said for the Norwegian National Team. Anything can happen, but one figures if Bradley does take that job, the door would most likely be definitively shut on his launching LAFC in MLS in 2018.

Of course, it’s an ongoing story, so we’ll see what happens in the days and weeks to come.
