Not only is Bob Bradley a great manager, but he’s just an overall top human being. We’ve found that out over the years as he’s been a stand-up guy on and off the field in the United States and all around the globe.
Swansea City fans are beginning to learn as well. Their new American coach showed up unannounced today at a Swansea City Disabled Supporters Association Q&A session and surprised everyone in attendance with his presence.
As a DSA we were absolutely delighted to welcome Bob to our evening! Thanks also to @MarkBirraz @AlfieMawson @LeeTrundle10 fantastic guests⚽ https://t.co/PtxnCbv9c2— Swansea City DSA (@SwansDSA) October 18, 2016
Wales Online has some great photos of Bob taking pictures with those in attendance, as well.
There was a bit of consternation around Swansea with the way previous manager, Francesco Guidolin, was let go right as Bob was coming into the job. However, good-hearted gestures like this and gritty, max-effort performances like his team had in a tough luck loss to Arsenal this past weekend will surely ease the transition period for the supporters.
If there was any doubt that Bob Bradley would be the right man to be the first American to coach in the Premier League, these types of moments should alleviate them. He’s right where he’s supposed to be.
