He hasn’t gotten a call from Fulham yet, and the USSF hasn’t renewed his contract with the men’s national team, but Bob Bradley has at least one high-profile supporter.

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson said as much in the Daily Mail, saying that, “‘I think he did a fantastic job and I am surprised the USA have not sprinted to his house and given him a new contract.”

Ferguson also thinks Bradley is ready for a managerial post in Europe, even at Fulham.

“He may want the challenge himself, I think that what he has achieved with the USA has been very good, he is a young man and I don’t think there is anything wrong with taking a challenge in Europe or England for that matter,” Ferguson said.

“I know he has been linked with Fulham and I don’t think it is beyond his boundaries at all, I think he is very capable of taking on a challenge like that.”

Fulham may well be heading in another direction, but having someone like Sir Alex Ferguson talking up your abilities has to be good for Bob Bradley in the long run.
