Swansea Sack Their Manager And Appoint A New One In The Same Tweet
Francesco Guidolin has been sacked as Swansea City manager, with the club lurched in 17th place.
For years now, Swansea have been a solid mid-table Premier League team but have dipped massively under the Italian, prompting the club's new American Owners to give him the boot - though it has seemed inevitable for quite some time.
What was surprising however, is the fact that Swansea sacked Guidolin and appointed Bob Bradley as their new manager in the very same tweet.

Even worse for Guidolin, the sacking comes on his birthday. Not the present he wanted, we imagine.
It's fair to say that a lot of Swansea fans feel as though Guidolin has been treated harshly by the club.

Let's not be daft. If Guidolin "isn't the right man for the job" now, he certainly wasn't the man at the time he was given a contract. Joke.- Josh Kilmister (@joshkilmister) October 3, 2016
MISSING: The soul of Swansea City.
LAST SEEN: Being handed over to Steve Kaplan & Jason Levien.

Guidolin has been treated so shitty. Wish him the best with whatever is next for him.
