Bob Bradley wants to use Bruce Springsteen to kick-start Swansea’s season

8 Oct

“I asked how many of them had heard of Springsteen, U2, The Who, Tom Waits or Creedence Clearwater Revival.

“They looked at me as if I was crazy so I thought, we have to change this. So I pick my moments to throw in bits and pieces.

“Then when David Bowie passed away, I asked if any of them had heard the song ‘Heroes’. None of them knew the song and I couldn’t believe it. What world are these guys living in?

“I’ve been to over 50 Springsteen shows and I used to speak to players about his song ‘The Ties That Bind’.

“In life when you’re working with people, get to know people, have a team and something special together, you can’t break those ties.”

Bradley’s most notable achievement was guiding the US to the quarter-finals of the 2010 World Cup.
