Despite having been at Swansea for just 37 days, Bradley’s time at Swansea could be coming to an end.
Swansea appointed Bob Bradley just over a month ago, but three defeats and a draw have seen his odds to be the next Premier League manager to leave slashed dramatically. On Tuesday Bradley was best-price 33/1, but just 48 hours later he is as short as 6/4 and his days on the Welsh coast seem to be numbered.
After a poor start to the season, speculation surrounding Francesco Guidolin’s future at Swansea was rife and he was eventually sacked at the start of October. Chairman Huw Jenkins had already held meetings with Bob Bradley and announced him as Guidolin’s successor almost immediately.
The American faced a tough baptism of fire with an away trip to Arsenal to begin his time at the club. The Swans lost 3-2 and this defeat was followed up with a goalless home draw against Watford and two wholly uninspiring 3-1 losses to Stoke and Man Utd. Just how long has Bradley got left?
If Bradley’s fate is sealed and he is sacked before the Premier League returns, his reign will go down as the shortest in Premier League history. The American’s four game spell would comfortably beat current record holder Les Reed, who managed just seven games in charge of Charlton back in 2006.
