Egypt Coach Bob Bradley Addresses the Port Said Disaster

Former U.S. coach Bob Bradley was fortunately not at the Port Said stadium where a stampede/riot claimed the lives of 74 people during a match between Al Ahly and Al Masry yesterday. He was attending another match, scouting players in his current role as head of Egypt’s national team.

Here is an interview with him on the day after the tragedy, courtesy of his brother Jeff, who posted it to Twitter:

That’s pretty impressive. And as he said in the interview, he marched at the Sphinx with the Egyptian people today. However his quest to qualify Egypt for Brazil 2014 goes, Bradley will leave with that country’s respect.
