Swansea City sack manager and appoint Bob Bradley

Swansea City have become the first Premier League club to sack their manager this season as Francesco Guidolin was sacked.

His replacement is Bob Bradley, who has had managerial experience with the USA and Egypt national team and most recently has been at Ligue 2 side Le Harve. The decision comes only a few days after Swansea lost to Liverpool 2-1 after being 1-0 up.

Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins said “We are obviously disappointed to part company with Francesco. We felt he deserved his opportunity after the work he did last season. Unfor­tunately we have not been able to carry performances over from last season and we felt we needed to change things as soon as possible in order to move forward in a positive way. We would like to thank Francesco and his staff for their services to the club and wish them well for the future.’’

 
Talking about the appointment of Bradley he added: “We are delighted Bob has agreed to join us. He is highly regarded as a coach and has a wealth of experience on the inter­national and domestic front."
