Premier League managerial comings and goings

LONDON, Jan 4, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 04th Jan, 2017 ) - Premier League managerial casualties in the 2016/17 season: October 3 -- Swansea sack Italian Francesco Guidolin on his 61st birthday after just over nine months in charge -- having saved them from relegation in the 2015/16 campaign -- and appoint American Bob Bradley as his replacement.

December 22 -- Crystal Palace sack Alan Pardew months after he led them to witihin minutes of lifting the FA Cup only to lose to Manchester United in extra time. However, only six wins in 36 matches in the Calendar year and one in their last 11 brought to an end the Englishman's tenure.

Palace appointed Sam Allardyce, who is an expert in preserving clubs' Premier League status, never having been relegated, on December 23. December 27 -- Swansea end Bradley's 85 day tenure, comprising just two wins in 11 matches, and on January 3 name highly-regarded English coach Paul Clement as his full-time replacement.

January 3 -- Hull sack Mike Phelan after 82 days in his full-time role. He had previously been caretaker manager since Steve Bruce resigned a few days before the beginning of the campaign.
