Bradley’s Swan song

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - SPORTS -

The thieves re­port­edly gained ac­cess through a build­ing site on an ad­join­ing prop­erty.

The 32-year-old is ex­pected to fi­nal­ize a trans­fer to Chi­nese Su­per League club Shang­hai Shen­hua this week, and is re­port­edly set to pocket $41.6 mil­lion a sea­son — 20 times what he cur­rently earns at Boca Ju­niors.

Premier League strug­gler Swansea City dis­missed coach Bob Bradley on Tues­day af­ter only 11 games in charge.

Bradley be­came the first Amer­i­can to man­age in Eng­land’s top flight when he re­placed Francesco Guidolin in Oc­to­ber.

How­ever, the Swans won just twice since his ap­point­ment and is se­cond-from-bot­tom in the stand­ings.

“Swansea City can con­firm that the club has parted com­pany with man­ager Bob Bradley,” the Welsh club said.

Chair­man Huw Jenk­ins said: “We felt we had to make the change with half the Premier League sea­son re­main­ing.”

For­mer Team USA boss Bradley’s exit came a day af­ter the Swans were thumped 4-1 at home by West Ham, the club’s sev­enth loss of Bradley’s ten­ure.

The 58-year-old took train­ing on Tues­day but was sub­se­quently re­lieved of his du­ties.
