American Bob Bradley will replace Francesco Guidolin as Swansea City manager, the Premier League club said on Monday after sacking Guidolin.

Bradley, 58, who has been in charge at Le Havre in the French second division, is the former United States national team coach.

Bradley was hired as the Egyptian national team manager in November 2011 with the target of taking the Pharaohs to the 2014 World Cup for the first time since 1990, but he failed. Egypt had a perfect run during the group stage, claiming six wins out of six games, but stumbled against Ghana, who went through with a 7-3 aggregate in the play-off.

Led by Argentinean manager Hector Cuper, Egypt kicks off its World Cup qualifying campaign against Congo on 9 October.

Former Udinese coach Guidolin took over Swansea in January and kept the Welsh club clear of relegation, but they have struggled this season and are fourth bottom of the table after seven games.
