Bob Bradley: My future depends on next two games

The former United States and Egypt manager knows his job may rest on Swansea’s results in the next two contests, but isn’t focusing on that.

Bob Bradley’s Swansea’s tenure may come to an abrupt end if the Swans don’t pick up results in their next two games, the American manager conceded Thursday.

Ten games into Bradley’s run as the Swans boss and his squad has only managed to pick up wins in two of the contests over that span. Swansea’s last two contests have seen away defeats of 3-1 and 3-0 to West Bromwich and Middlesbrough respectively, leaving supporters skeptical of whether the former manager of the United States and Egypt national teams is up to the task.

Home matches against West Ham and Bournemouth in the next two fixtures offer Swansea, sitting 19th in the Premier League, a chance to grab some much-needed points in its relegation scrap and Bradley concedes its possible his future may hinge on those performances.

"Maybe,” Bradley said when asked whether those games may decide his fate as Swansea boss. “But I never know how that works. I don't spend much time thinking about it. I've been here for 10 games and when I arrived I knew it was a challenge.”

Bradley has received support from Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins. While that was followed with a 3-0 win over fellow struggler Sunderland, the two heavy defeats to West Brom and Middlesbrough have returned Bradley to the hot seat.

However, Bradley believes his side, with the right additions, can avoid relegation. And he also believes Swansea’s American owners, Steve Kaplan and Jason Levien, will spend what is necessary to get those players in January.

"I understand the frustration of the fans, it has been a difficult year,'' Bradley said. "But we are working hard to improve and we are committed to the end to stay in the Premier League.

"January is a challenge, an odd window, and everybody understands that is extra important for us this time around. There is an understanding that we will need to spend, but with every player there has to be a real discussion over the value of that individual.

"So far the discussions we have had have been positive, and Jason and Steve understand the responsibilities they have as owners in this window. We'll see how everything plays out, but there is clear understanding that we will work in a good way.''

Swansea sits three points away from 17th-place Crystal Palace, which fired manager Alan Pardew on Thursday, and five behind 16th-place Burnley.
