Bob Bradley, coach of the United States national team, has revealed a number of Premier League managers, which allegedly includes Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson, have offered assistance and support ahead of his country’s World Cup clash with England.
Bradley has visited Manchester United’s training ground on numerous occasions over the past few months, and has suggested Ferguson, along with several of his peers, has offered to help the United States out before their meeting with England on June 12.
“I have been in Europe a lot lately and I’ve had the chance to catch up with different people,” he said, as quoted by TimesOnline.
“I appreciated those opportunities, whether it was watching training sometimes or communicating about our players.
“Occasionally, there are some managers in England who subtly let me know they will be rooting for us that day. You can guess that they were not actually born in England. That’s all part of it, I guess.”
Bradley, whose side play Holland in a friendly on Wednesday night, refused to name Ferguson specifically.
“I've said too much,” he added, when asked about the United manager’s involvement.
