Hartson says sacking Bradley was correct call

With Swansea City sacking Bob Bradley after just 11 Premier League matches in charge, many have questioned whether the Welsh side gave the American enough time in the job to turn things around.

The Swans, rooted bottom of the table as we approach the halfway stage, lost seven of their eleven matches under the guidance of former USMNT boss Bob Bradley but the fact he wasn’t given a transfer window in charge, which would have allowed him to make his own impression on the squad, has been criticised by many.

Swansea-born ex-pro John Hartson believes his local club made the right call though and called for the next appointment to be short-term.

Swansea’s hopes of avoiding a drop to the second-tier of English football look bleak though as Hartson believes the club need nine victories from their twenty matches remaining, which is a big ask given they have just three to their name from their first 18.

Hosting Bournemouth on New Year’s Eve before clashing with fellow strugglers Crystal Palace in their first match of 2017, Swansea will hope for better performances in those matches as a difficult run soon follows that sees the Swans clash with Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea before the end of February.
