Swansea Sack Guidolin On His Birthday

Swansea City have sacked Francesco Guidolin as head coach and replaced him with former USA manager Bob Bradley.

The Swans have not won in the Premier League since the opening day of the season and are 17th in the table.

Bradley, who has also managed Egypt and Norwegian side Stabaek, leaves French second-tier team Le Havre to succeed Guidolin, who was appointed in January.

The club’s hierarchy spoke to several potential candidates, including former Wales captain Ryan Giggs.

American Bradley, 58, will take over a Swansea side who have lost their past three league matches and find themselves above the relegation zone only on goal difference.

Guidolin has been under intense pressure – which was increased by Saturday’s 2-1 home defeat by Liverpool – and his sacking was announced on his 61st birthday on Monday.

Three members of the Italian’s backroom staff – Diego Bortoluzzi, Gabrielle Ambrosetti, Claudio Bordon – have also left the Welsh club.
