Happy birthday Francesco Guidolin!

And what better way to celebrate than by getting sacked by Swansea?

Apparently it's Guidolin's birthday, that's pretty harsh! Wonder if they put a bow on the P45 🎂

The Italian, who joined back in January when the club were battling relegation, will be replaced by former United States boss Bob Bradley.

Some Swansea fans were pretty angry at the way things went down.

No way did we sack Guidolin on his birthday? Any shred of class remaining at the club, thrown away right there.

Guidolin always behaved with dignity and respect. Ashamed to say the Swans' treatment of him lacks any dignity or respect.

#Swans are a shambles. Feel so sorry for Guidolin, deserved far more respect and time. Hate to say it but embarrassing from Jenkins & board.

And everyone was remembering this classic Trevor Francis anecdote.

It’s a big moment for American football.

Bob Bradley is the first American to manage in any of the current top five European leagues (ENG, ESP, FRA, GER, ITA). 🇺🇸

Not that you’d necessarily know it from the reaction.

some #USMNT fans on here are already predicting Bob Bradley's failure. Shouldn't this be a moment of celebration for you guys? #SwanseaCity

EDITORS: be sure to give proper deference to his previous experience & refer to Swansea’s new coach as “former Chivas USA boss Bob Bradley”.

Just wait til the Twitter meltdown when Bob Bradley calls it "soccer" in his first press conference.

Mostly though, people are just gutted for a guy who had one of the most miserable birthdays it’s possible to have.

Manchester City’s failure to get Yaya Toure a cake doesn’t look so bad now, does it?
