English football club Swansea City on Monday announced that Italian coach Francesco Guidolin has been fired and replaced with former United States tactician Bob Bradley.
The decision was made after the Swans won only one English Premier League match this season, drew in another, and suffered five losses under the Italian’s command, and now find themselves in 17th position with just four points, reports Efe.
Bradley, who has also managed Egypt and Norwegian side Stabaek, will leave French second-tier team Le Havre to succeed Guidolin, who was appointed head coach last January.
The 58-year-old American led the United States to win the CONCACAF Gold Cup in 2007, and was the finalist in the 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup. Bradley’s first match in charge will be against Arsenal on October 15 after the international break.
