USA’s Bob Bradley reveals Aston Villa interest


USA head coach Bob Bradley has admitted that he is interested in the managerial vacancy at Aston Villa.

The 52-year-old has been in charge of his country's national team for the last four years and led the US to the last 16 at the World Cup finals in South Africa earlier this summer.

Bradley told BBC Radio Five Live's Sportsweek programme:"Of course I think Aston Villa is a massive club with great history and a great following and those types of opportunities would be of interest.

"I would certainly be honoured to have that conversation, but I'm impressed with the way things have been handled so far and we'll see what the future holds.

"I've always been excited about being a manager in Europe, but at the same time I'm proud of the work we've done with the US team over the last four years. It is important to consider that as a challenge as well. So we'll see what happens.

"There have been discussions with some of my representatives to at least find out the situation, but Aston Villa seem to have taken a good stance where they have been patient.

"They have a very good man in Kevin MacDonald who is highly respected in the club, so I think on the one hand they are probably putting a list together and on the other making sure Kevin has the time to consider his future as well. It has been handled very well.

"I had some people do some checking just to find out where things stood."
