Swansea City have today begun the search for Bob Bradley’s successor and the successor to Bradley’s successor after the American’s sacking this evening.
Speaking mere hours after the club relieved the former United States and Egypt coach of his duties, chairman Huw Jenkins revealed that the Welsh side had already made inquiries regarding replacing Bradley, as well as replacing his eventual successor.
“For too long this club’s thinking has been little more than short term. We want to get back to the long term planning that once made us a unique team. As such, we are already in the process of hiring not only Bob’s replacement, but the man who will replace him too,” said Jenkins, adding that the club are looking at four candidates to take over from Bradley, with one of the three unsuccessful candidates likely to be lined up to take over from Bradley’s successor before the end of the season.
“If all things go to plan we’ll have a new manager in soon, and then when things go poorly for him we’ll bring a new guy to see us through the final three games of the season and the first few of next year.”
At press time, the club expressed confidence in their recruitment process and insisted that they were excited to see what their next two managers could bring to the club.
