Bradley in danger after 6-1 rout

News

The former United States national team coach will probably relinquish the coaching seat for the second leg against the Black Stars in November in Cairo, because of fears for his safety.

On the team’s return from Ghana, airport security had to be heightened as many Egyptian fans were livid after the humiliating result.

However, should Egypt fire Bradley he would be owed an estimated $366,000 (R3.6-million) in compensation.

“It is not logical to sack him [Bradley] and pay a big fine for the last match of his contract,” Egypt Football Association chairman Gamal Allam says.

Pharoahs assistant coach Diaa El Sayed will lkely take charge of the return match on November 19.

Ghana wrote to Fifa last week to ask for the second leg to be moved to a neutral venue because of safety fears, but the Egyptian FA have assured Fifa they will guarantee security for the match.
