Bob Bradley was fired

Swansea will have its third manager of the season after Bob Bradley was fired.
The American stayed there for only 85 days in he led the Welsh players in 11 games, but the team did not record much improvement in them.
Bradley replaced Francesco Guidolin at the beginning of October, but the team lost 7 of its games, as the 1:4 defeat against West Ham yesterday meant an end to his period at the helm of the club.
At his coming, the team was outside of the danger zone in terms of a goal difference and is now four points away from the safe 17th place. Swansea managed to overcome the team of Crystal Palace with 5:4 and Sunderland with 3:0 and made draws with Everton and Watford.
`Sorry to break it to Bob so quickly, but things just didn`t work out as we wanted. We believe that now is the time for a new change as there is half a season remained. Hard times make us try to find answers, to get out of trouble. Bob is a great professional and we wish him all the best in the future.`, said the President Hugh Jenkins.
For the match from sport-tips against Bournemouth on Saturday, the team will be led by Alan Curtis and Paul Williams, as most likely, they would be ahead of the team for the visit of Crystal Palace on 3 January.

Ancelotti: `I prefer to win the Champions League instead of the Bundesliga.`

The Bayern Munich`s coach Carlo Ancelotti admitted he`d rather win the Champions League with the the Bavarians, instead of title in the Bundesliga.The comment of the Italian is something new for a mentor or as a manager of FC Bayern, because so far `the silver gravy boat` has always been objective 1.
After they have made a total domination in Germany (four consecutive titles), however, Bayern Munich is again experiencing a huge hunger for the trophy in the Champions League, dropping out in the semifinals three years in a row in the race.
`Personally, I prefer to win the Champions League, instead of the title in the tournament. The management prefers the title, because he knows that in the Champions League is very difficult. Bayern Munich reached the semi-finals three times in a row and I want us to reach at least that stage this season. I hope we will triumph in the tournament. Or at least to play in the final.`, said Ancelotti.
`By the time our team is performing well, but there is where to improve. The time is upon us. The key point of the season is the period between February and April. We must prepare for that stage of the campaign. The atmosphere at Bayern is fantastic, it is a family. It`s like I`m back in Milan. Former players of the club adviced by sport tips were able to create great stability.`, added Ancelotti.

Barca is considering an offer for Bacca

Barcelona is considering an offer for the AC Milan attacker Carlos Bacca. The Colombian player will most likely be sold in January, and according to the Spanish press, the Catalans are ready to do the service of the Rossoneri.
The 30-year-old striker was strongly criticised for his decision to attend a match via sport-tips of Sevilla, instead of watching his teammates playing against Empoli. Barca is still looking for a central striker, once it borrowed Paco Alcacer from Valencia and he has not scored a goal yet since the start of the season.
At the Camp Nou they are ready to send Alcacer in Milan and to pay some more, but Milan wants 30 million euros for Bacca. The Colombian footballer will miss today`s derby against Roma because of an injury.
