Swansea Fans Are Furious As Francesco Guidolin is Sacked on His Birthday

Francesco Guidolin has been sacked by Swansea City – with the club’s American owners deciding to sack the Italian on his 61st birthday.

In one solitary tweet, Guidolin was relieved of his job and replaced by former USA coach Bob Bradley, who takes his first-ever job in the Premier League.

The Swans have lost their last three matches, and remain outside the relegation zone on goal difference only, having failed to win since the opening day of the season.

You can understand why the club’s hierarchy would be antsy about their status in the top-flight, particularly when you consider the massive amount of TV money at stake.

But, on his birthday?! That’s brutal.

And on top of that, supporters don’t seem exactly thrilled about the impending arrival of Bradley:

What do you think about the situation? Was Guidolin’s sacking inevitable, given the situation Swansea are in?
