After less than three months of becoming the first American manager in Premier League history, Bob Bradley has been fired from Swansea City.

Bradley, 58, won just two matches in the 11 he was in charge, losing seven times and drawing twice.

He leaves the Swans at 19th in the Premier League table, tied with Hull City for the least about of points in the league.

His final match in charge was a 4-1 home defeat to West Ham United.

While Bradley tried to implement a proactive style into the team, the defense was his ultimate downfall as the club conceded 29 goals in the 11 matches he’s been in charge.

After being hired by the club in October, he didn’t even get a transfer window to improve the squad to his liking.

Most will come to his defense and say that the talent wasn’t there for him to turnaround the club in such a short time frame. In a just world, Bradley would’ve received plenty of more time to right the ship. Unfortunately, in the cutthroat world of the Premier League, those 11 matches will be the mark he leaves in the English top flight. What a cruel world.
