Swansea Replace Sacked Guidolin With Bradley

share on:

Swansea City manager Francesco Guidolin has been relieved of his duties at the club on his 61st birthday to be replaced by former USA coach Bradley.

Guidolin has only been guiding the club since January and after picking up just four points from seven EPL games this season, he has been removed from his position.

The Italian’s last game in charge was Saturday’s 2-1 home defeat against Liverpool, where he saw Swansea lose a first-half lead.

“Swansea City can confirm that the club has parted company with manager Francesco Guidolin,” read Swansea’s statement.

“He will be replaced by former USA national team manager Bob Bradley with the club having agreed his release from French club Le Havre after their fixture with Sochaux tonight.”

Chairman Huw Jenkins said Guidolin had paid the price for recent results after helping to keep Swansea up in the second half of last season, despite missing some time through illness.

“We are obviously disappointed to part company with Francesco,” he said.

“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.

“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.

“He is well aware of the club’s footballing philosophy and will provide us with strong leadership qualities and a renewed belief to compete at this level.

“It is never easy changing managers, but we are looking at a long-term appointment and we are confident Bob can settle us down and stabilise matters on and off the pitch.”
