The former USA and Egypt boss took the reins at the Hadderud Stadion on Friday to become the first US tactician to take the reins of a top flight club in Europe, joining two other current head coaches in the region.

Alongside Bradley is Dennis Lukens, who oversees Ukrainian second division side, as well as German-born former USA international David Wagner who is the boss of Borussia Dortmund II.

Other Americans who have managed in Europe include newly-appointed Columbus Crew boss Gregg Berhalter (Hammarby, Sweden 2011-2013), Joe Enochs (Osnabruck, Germany 2011), Brent Goulet (SV Elversberg, Germany 2004-2008) and Tim Hankinson (UMF Tindastoll, Iceland 1991).
