Christmas is coming. So is the announcement of Vancouver Whitecaps' new head coach. You'll just have to wait a little longer for both.
Caps President Bobby Lenarduzzi was on Team 1040 radio this morning and talked about the search. He wouldn't comment specifically on rumours or individual names but did say: "The people that we're talking to have commitments and don't have the ability to make that decision as quickly as we would like. Having said all that, I would hope that by next week we would be able to confirm who the next coach of the Whitecaps would be."
We can rule out Santa Claus then. His commitments extend for a few weeks yet.
On Sunday it was reported
that the Whitecaps were set to break the bank to bring Bob Bradley to Vancouver as their new head coach and an offer had been made, but not accepted or declined.
But would Bradley be the right man for the job? Does he even really want it and why are people excited by such a possible appointment?
