11 GAMES!! Where does Bob Bradley’s Swansea stint rank in history?

Swansea City ended their relationship with Bob Bradley on Tuesday after just 85 days together.

The American coach was sacked after 11 Premier League matches which is the second shortest stint for a fully appointed Premier League manager.

Only one man, Les Reed, had been in a permanent job for a smaller amount of time, showing just how disastrous Bradley's spell at the Liberty Stadium was.
