While the results haven’t been there for Bob Bradley thus far in his Swansea City tenure, his job is not under threat.
Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins reaffirmed his support for his under fire manager, stating that the team needs consistency at the managerial position in order to avoid relegation and that Bradley’s job was safe.
“I don’t know where that story came from, but it’s natural in football that everyone wants and needs results.” Jenkins told TalkSPORT. “But the last thing we need at this moment of time is a continual change in manager. We need stability first and foremost.
“Take a team like Fulham, they changed managers three times in the season they tried to stave off relegation and we’re in a similar position now.”
Bradley has had an unfortunate run of results, including a bad 5-0 loss to Tottenham, failing to distinguish himself so far from his predecessor. But Jenkins does not want Bradley to be judged without a fair chance.
“We’re with Bob now to try and turn that corner – that’s what we’re working towards.” said Jenkins. “We look at the January window as a chance to reinforce things. There are players not hitting the form levels they have done in the past and we have to find out why that is and get that right as well.”
