Bradley insists no rift at Swansea

Swansea coach Bob Bradley has rubbished rumours that his players are unhappy with his training methods ahead of their crucial Boxing Day clash with West Ham.

Under-fire Bradley has claimed just two wins in his 10 matches in charge in Wales and has said that his job could be on the line if the Swans fail to do well in upcoming home games against West Ham and Bournemouth.

But he denied there is a problem with his players about his training regime

"No truth to it," Bradley told Sky Sports when asked about the press reports.

"We've had a very good response. Since I've arrived the focus has been sharper, shorter training, more intensity, more tempo,” he added.

"Of course we also discuss the whole part of the week and we try to make sure that everything from what warm-ups are like, how it goes into training, what's done in the gym, we're trying to make sure the balance in everything is right.

"But I have to say the response of the players has been very good,” he said.

The American said that he has identified a number of targets ahead of the January transfer window and hopes to add to his squad as Swansea attempt to climb out of the relegation places.

He said that there had been “good discussions” with Swansea’s owners Jason Levein and Steve Kaplan, and that they were ready to add some new blood to the squad.

"We must finish up 2016 in a good way so that we can use the momentum heading into 2017," he said.
