Report: Despite rumors, Le Havre not worried about losing Bob Bradley

The rumor mill is going to go wild if Swansea loses its next match, but the club that might be asked to donate its head coach to the struggling Premiership side is not concerned.

If Swansea City loses to Liverpool on October 1, Francesco Guidolin might lose his job. It has been widely reported that Swansea is actively canvassing possible replacements for its struggling head coach. One man said to be in the mix: former MetroStars manager Bob Bradley.

Bradley's name gets thrown into chat about coaching vacancies - real or imagined - with some regularity. But the club he actually works for, Ligue 2's Le Havre, isn't concerned. HAC's General Manager Arnaud Tanguy told Paris Normandie that there has been no contact with the club regarding a move for Bradley, nor has the head coach indicated he wants out:

There is no reason to worry.

Further, club president Vincent Volpe had previously told Paris Normandie he had no reason to question Bradley's commitment to HAC's primary ambition, and therefore no reason to care about reports that his head coach has the sort of reputation that makes other teams take notice:

Bob is a great pro and has the same objective as everyone in the club, namely access in Ligue 1. He gives a hundred percent for the club to advance, the rest I do not care.

Le Havre isn't in action in Ligue 2 again until Monday, October 3, by which time the press may want to talk to Bradley about matters other than whatever result is achieved against Sochaux. If Swansea loses to Liverpool on October 1, Bradley's commitment to HAC's cause and HAC's lack of concern about his future with the club may both have to endure a testing a weekend.
