Former Premier League coach axed by Toronto
Bradley, who was also the sporting director in an unusual combination, was hired by Toronto in November 2021 but failed to guide the club to the playoffs in his first campaign in charge. Injuries have beset the Reds this campaign as well and following 10 draws in their opening 20 matches this term, the three-time MLS coach of the year has been dismissed with under-17’s coach and former Man City player Terry Dunfield taking charge on an interim basis until a new permanent boss is appointed.
Speaking of the former Swansea City boss, Toronto FC president Bill Manning said in an official statement: “Bob has been a consummate professional with Toronto FC and we thank him for his passion and tireless work during his time here.”
“We are all disappointed that we were not able to achieve the results we expected.”
