It was only a matter of time.

English Premier League club Swansea City has officially announced that the club has parted ways with manager Bob Bradley.

The firing comes a day after the side’s recent 4-1 Boxing Day loss to West Ham United at Liberty Stadium.

Swansea City Chairman Huw Jenkins provided a public statement, apologizing to Bradley for such a short stint.

“We are sorry to lose Bob after such a short period of time,’’ said Jenkins. “Unfortunately things haven’t worked out as planned and we felt we had to make the change with half the Premier League season remaining.

“With the club going through such a tough time, we have to try and find the answers to get ourselves out of trouble.

“Personally, I have nothing but praise for Bob. He is a good man; a good person who gave everything to the job. His work-rate is phenomenal and we wish him well for the future.’’

Bradley joined Swansea on October 3rd after the firing of Francesco Guidolin. After his appointment, the American manager spent 11 games at the helm of the Welsh Club, only to see his side remain in the relegation zone with 12 points.
