OFFICIAL: Bob Bradley has been sacked as Swansea manager after just 85 days in charge
Struggling Swansea City have parted company with Bob Bradley less than three months after he was appointed, the club have confirmed.
The American was chosen as Francesco Guidolin’s successor on October 3, but the Swans won just two of the 11 Premier League matches he oversaw and are lying 19th in the table.
A dismal 4-1 home defeat at the hands of West Ham on Monday proved to be Bradley’s last game in charge, with Swansea confirming his dismissal on Tuesday.
Chairman Huw Jenkins said: “We are sorry to lose Bob after such a short period of time.
“Unfortunately things haven’t worked out as planned and 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.
“Personally, 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 vowed to “fight like crazy” in the wake of Swansea’s West Ham humbling, but admitted that his future was out of his hands.
Swansea have been particularly poor in defence during Bradley’s short tenure, with the club conceding 29 goals in just 11 matches.
First-team coaches Paul Williams and Alan Curtis have been placed in charge for the short term.
