Swansea City have confirmed that they have parted company with manager Francesco Guidolin.
Former United States national team coach Bob Bradley has been named as his replacement - Swansea City's fourth manager in the space of a year.
Former Udinese boss Guidolin joined Swansea in January as head coach and was given a two-year contract in May.
Ryan Giggs and Gianfranco Zola were among those to have been linked with the Swansea job.
Bradley has been working at French club Le Havre in Ligue 2.
Swansea's only wins this season were at Burnley on the opening day of the Premier League season and against Peterborough in the EFL Cup.
Manchester City and Liverpool have beaten the Swans in successive weeks and they travel to Arsenal on October 15, following the international break.
We are looking at a long-term appointment and we are confident Bob can settle us down and stabilise matters on and off the pitch.
Francesco Guidolin will be given time to shift Swansea's momentum after a run of five matches without a win.
An American consortium led by Stephen Kaplan and Jason Levien took over in July, inheriting Guidolin as manager.
According to Press Association Sport though, a change of boss just weeks into the Premier League is not inevitable, despite Swansea being without a win.
Ryan Giggs and Gianfranco Zola have both been linked to the job, but after Saturday's loss to Manchester City Guidolin admitted he had not yet discussed his future at the club.
Francesco Guidolin was given a two-year contract with the Swans in May.
Giggs, who left his role as Manchester United assistant manager over the summer, ending a 29-year association with the club, last week said he had had no contact with Swansea.

Swansea captain Leon Britton has signed a one-year contract extension to remain at the Liberty Stadium until the summer of 2018.
Britton, who turns 34 next month, has made 514 appearances for the club, after first joining her on loan from West Ham in December 2002.
On the club's website Britton said signing the contract extension was " a very easy decision".
If you include the loan deals when I first came, I have now signed 13 contracts at Swansea.
You never know, there might be a 14th - it's down to me to try to prove I can still do a job.
Swansea City have recorded a comfortable 4-0 victory over Wolves in their penultimate pre-season match.
Goals from Wayne Routledge, Kyle Naughton and Oliver McBurnie were enough to earn Francesco Guidolin's side a win at Molineux.
