Toronto FC Sack Bob Bradley: Examining the Astonishing Reality of Toronto’s Revolving Door Culture

Toronto FC continued their downward spiral under the leadership of Bob Bradley, leading to the club severing ties with the former LA Galaxy and US National Team coach on Monday. Mike Sorber, his assistant and technical director, was also axed alongside him.

Bob Bradley is an absolute legend in the history of American soccer. The New Jersey-born coach has paved the way for many other coaches to explore the coaching world. Although not known for his many wins as a manager, Bob Bradley has done more for American soccer than any other soccer manager in the country’s history.

His most prominent gig came in the English top flight when he was appointed the head coach of Swansea City for the remainder of the 2016/17 season, becoming the first American coach to take charge of a Premier League team. Why did Toronto FC sack Bob Bradley? Let’s find out.

Former USMNT Coach Bob Bradly Axed by Toronto FC

It was revealed on Monday that Toronto FC have decided to part ways with Bob Bradley after picking up just 19 points in the Easter Conference this season. Toronto FC are lying in 14th place, one spot ahead of last-placed Inter Miami FC, who are in a mess of their own despite the recent signing of World Cup winner Lionel Messi.

The club president confirmed in a statement, “Bob has been a consummate professional with Toronto FC, and we thank him for his passion and tireless work during his time here.” He later added, “We are all disappointed that we were not able to achieve the results we expected.”

This had been coming; after all, Bradley only managed to win two of his last 17 games for the club. During this period, he drew seven and lost eight in all competitions, making his dismissal inevitable.

Terry Dunfield has taken over as the interim coach, making him the 13th manager in the club’s history. The former Canadian international and Manchester City player will inherit a squad decimated by injuries and unfulfilled potential. Lorenzo Insigne and Federico Bernardeschi are two of the team’s star players, and the sooner they rediscover their form, the better for the new interim head coach.
