Bob Bradley is keen on taking over over at Sunderland, though admits he may be an outsider for the job.

The American, who is currently in charge of Stabaek in Norway, was linked with the job on Tuesday, although it was understood no contact has been made over the vacancy at the Stadium of Light.

However, speaking to Norwegian newspaper Budstikka, The former US coach is quoted as saying:

"In a club like Sunderland, there might be a possibility, but there are a lot of managers who wants a job like that. I'm realistic, and realize that the list of candidates is long. At the same time, I'm confident.

"I believe in myself as a coach. I know that I can enter any scenario, and give everything that I've got".

Bradley has some strong endorsements out there and is clearly keen for a crack at the Premier League, but you sense the situation may call for a more established hand. Interesting times, anyway.
