Cape Town - Bob Bradley says he is looking forward to his next coaching challenge after admitting he knew just how tough the Swansea job would be, following his dismissal on Tuesday.

The struggling Premier League club opted to part ways with the 58-year-old former United States Egypt boss after just 85 days in charge.

Bradley faced a difficult challenge to turn around the fortunes of the ailing club, and managed just two wins in his 11 games.

Speaking after his sacking, a pragmatic Bradley told NBC: "I knew exactly what I was getting into when I came to Swansea and realised the hardest part was always going to be getting points in the short run.

"But I believe in myself and I believe in going for it. That's what I've always told my players.

"Football can be cruel and to have a chance you have to be strong.

"I wish Swansea the best and look forward to my next challenge."

A number of names have already been considered for the post, including Ryan Giggs, Alan Pardew and Gary Rowett.
