Swansea City have parted company with Bob Bradley after only 11 games in charge.

He took over from Francesco Guidolin in October but has been unable to to improve the fortunes of the Welsh club sufficiently and they have taken action.

Speaking at the announcement, club chairman Hew 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,’ he added.

Swansea are currently bottom of the league, level on 12 points with Hull City. The club have conceded 29 goals since Bradley took over and have only registered two wins in that time.

The 4-1 loss to West Ham at home was the final straw for the club's hierarchy and they made the announcement of Bradley's departure a short time ago.
