Swansea City FC sack Guidolin, Bradley takes over 

​Swansea City have sacked manager Francesco Guidolin on the day of his 61st birthday and replaced him with former United States national team manager Bob Bradley thus making him the first managerial casualty of the 2016/17 Premier League season. 

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.

Bradley takes over after having stints with the Egyptian National team, the United States national team abd presently Le Havre in France.
