Francesco Guidolin has only been in charge of Swansea City since January and is removed from his position on the day of his 61th birthday after picking up just four points in the first seven games of this season’s Premier League, making him the first top-flight casualty of the campaign.
Bob Bradley, 58, leaves his role with Ligue 2 club Le Havre to take charge of Swansea, with his first game being a trip to play Arsenal on October 15 after the international break.
He has previously managed Stabaek in Norway’s top-flight and had a two-year spell in charge of Egypt’s national team, but is best known for his five years in charge of USA between 2006 and 2011, where he led the country to the 2010 World Cup and reached the last 16.
Le Havre, who have appointed Oswald Tanchot to replace Bradley, thanked the American after confirming his departure and revealed they had been planning for his exit.
We can confirm the club has parted company with Francesco Guidolin, who will be replaced by Bob Bradley.
