WATCH: Los Angeles TV station claims Bob Bradley is Chelsea's new manager

New, comments

Nice try, America.

Soccer is America's sport of the future, just as it has been since 1907, but there will be growing pains.  Here's ABC's Los Angeles affiliate ABC7 reporting Bob Bradley's new job earlier today.

The former head coach of the US Men's National Team of course did not become Chelsea's new head coach overnight.  Antonio Conte remains firmly in the job.

Bradley did take over Swansea City on Monday after the Welsh side sacked manager Francesco Guidolin in the wake of this weekend's 2-1 home loss to Liverpool.  We consider this karmic payback for that Leroy Fer "clean" tackle on Gary Cahill (yes, both "clean" tackles).

The well-traveled Bob Bradley becomes to the first American manager in the Premier League.  Repeat after me: U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A!
