London — Bob Bradley insisted he is "totally committed" to coaching Egypt's national team despite the turmoil in the country following the riot at a game last week that left more than 70 dead.
The federation president who hired Bradley last year and his board were dismissed by the prime minister in the aftermath of Wednesday's rampage.
But Bradley, a former U.S. national team coach, is sure that he will lead Egypt into African Cup of Nations qualifying.
"I'm totally committed," Bradley told broadcaster Al-Jazeera according to an emailed transcript. "When a tragedy like this occurs it's important that people can come together and can be strong, and in my role as coach of the national team I want to do whatever I can in my responsibilities to help with this process."
