Bob Bradley: I want to understand Swansea City's "soul"
21st October 2016
Bob Bradley is doing all he can to understand the "soul" of Swansea City as he bids to lead the club away from relegation danger.
The new Swans boss takes charge of his first home game when Watford visit the Liberty Stadium this weekend.
Bradley arrived in Wales a little over a fortnight ago having been chosen as the man to succeed Francesco Guidolin.
And though his primary focus has been on the football, Bradley has revealed how he is trying hard to get to grips with every aspect of his new club.
That starts at the training ground, where Bradley has made a big impact already thanks in no small part to his communication skills.
"Getting to know Fairwood is still the most important thing for me in many ways," Bradley tells this weekend's edition of Jack Magazine.
"As you meet the people there, you get a sense of the soul of the club.
"That is vital, as I think feeling the soul of a club is the number one thing that has to happen because that guides you every day in terms of the mission you're on.
"I feel good about that."
