Swansea City have sacked manager Francesco Guidolin on the day of his 61st birthday and replaced him with former United States national team boss Bob Bradley.

Guidolin has only been in charge of the Welsh side since January and is removed from his position after picking up just four points in the first seven games of this season's Premier League.

The Italian's last game in charge was Saturday's 2-1 home defeat to Liverpool, where he saw Swansea lose a first-half lead.

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.

The sacked Guidolin helped to keep Swansea up in the second half of last season, despite missing some time through illness.
