Twitter Reacts As Guidolin Is Sacked On 61st Birthday

After defeat against Liverpool confirmed Swansea’s worst league start in 25 years, Francesco Guidolin was today sacked by the Swansea board, with American Bob Bradley the man chosen to now take the club forward. Guidolin did well to keep the ‘Swans’ in the Premier League last campaign, but after 5 defeats in 7 League games, the decision was taken to relive the Italian of his managerial duties.

Pressure had been building on Guidolin for some time, and many in the media had tipped former Manchester United Legend, Ryan Giggs, as an early favourite for the position, however, former USA coach Bob Bradley is the man the Swansea board have entrusted the rest of the club’s season to.

Swansea have had a tough run of fixtures, and many undoubtedly feel the decision to sack the Italian is harsh, but in Bob Bradley, Swansea have turned to a coach with a solid reputation, even if he has so far not had much experience of European football.

The decision does represent a risk, and Twitter was of course full of opinions on Guidolin’s sacking, and many did feel that the time was right for a change, while fans have appeared keen to get behind new man Bob Bradley.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Not everyone is behind the dismissal of Guidolin, with some voicing their concern at replacing a manager who kept them up last season, with a manager with very limited experience of the European game

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After Swansea’s recent run of fixtures, sacking Guidolin does seem harsh, and as the decision was taken on his 61st birthday, it is very difficult not to feel sorry for the Italian.
