Mental toughness & resilience for coaches
A rebroadcast from 2014, with the first-ever American to be appointed as head coach (manager) of a British Premier League team – Swansea.
Bob Bradley one of the most experienced and resilient coaches in the world. He has led the U.S. National Men’s team, the Egyptian National Men’s team, Stabaek, a top division club side in Norway and in 2016, Le Havre, the French Second Division squad.
He’s also a soccer dad extraordinaire – his son Michael is one of the leading American players and was a standout during this summer’s World Cup.
Bob has learned quite a few lessons along the way: from 2006 to 2011 where his U.S. team won 43 games, tied 12 and lost 25. Among the victories was a triumph in 2009 over Spain, the number one ranked country at the time. 2011 to 2013 was spent Egypt, compiling a record of 24 wins, 5 ties and 7 losses. Since earlier this year he’s been at the helm of Stabaek, a first division team based in suburban Oslo.
