Friedel: Bob Bradley will change Swansea's style of play

Former USA goalkeeper Brad Friedel believes Bob Bradley's appointment at Swansea City will lead to a change in their style of play.

Bradley was named Swansea manager following the sacking of Francesco Guidolin.

The Swans have not won in the Premier League since the opening day of the season and are 17th in the table.

"The style of play will be different to what it was like under [Roberto] Martinez and [Brendan] Rodgers - it will be more direct and I hope the fans will be prepared for that," Friedel told Mark Chapman on 5 live Sport.

"He's not a long-ball coach, but it will be more pragmatic. I'm not saying it will be difficult on the eye, but it will be efficient."
