Swansea City have sacked their Italian manager Francesco Guidolin and replaced him with American Bob Bradley.

Former Udinese coach Guidolin took over in January and kept the Welsh club clear of relegation but they have struggled this season and are fourth bottom of the table after seven games.

Bradley, 58, is the former United States national team coach and has been been working at French club Le Havre in Ligue 2.

Swansea's only wins this season were at Burnley on the opening day of the Premier League season and against Peterborough in the EFL Cup.

Swansea lost in the next round to Manchester City, while the only Premier League point in five games was a 2-2 draw with Chelsea.

Manchester City and Liverpool have beaten the Swans in successive weeks and they travel to Arsenal on October 15, following the international break.
