Less than a week after ‘Crystal Palace’ laid off ‘Alan Pardew’, Swansea City has also sacked manager, Bob Bradley following their 4-1 defeat at home to West Ham United.
Bradley who was sacked after just 85days in charge of the Swans was relieved off his duties on Tuesday, 27th December 2016 by Swansea chairman, ‘Huw Jenkins’.
The Swans chairman had a lot of kind words for Bradley, labeling him as a good person who gave everything to the job.
Huw Jenkins said;
"We felt we had to make the change with half the Premier League season remaining. With the club going through such a tough time, we have to try and find the answers to get ourselves out of trouble".
"I have nothing but praise for Bob. He is a good man; a good person who gave everything to the job. His work-rate is phenomenal and we wish him well for the future".
Bradley who spoke with the club's official website thanked the club and its supporters for his time with them, adding that he knew what he was getting himself into by managing the club in the first place.
"I knew exactly what I was getting into when I came to Swansea and realized the hardest part was always going to be getting points in the short run".
"But I believe in myself and I believe in going for it. That's what I've always told my players. Football can be cruel and to have a chance, you have to be strong. I wish Swansea the best and look forward to my next challenge".
Swansea who are currently placed 19th in the relegation zone with 12points from 18 league games will be looking to replace the American with a manager that can take them out of their current precarious position.
Amongst favorites to replace Bradley is former Manchester United assistant coach, Ryan Giggs’ and Welsh national team manager, ‘Chris Coleman’.
