Swansea City midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson says the club is already moving in the right direction under new manager Bob Bradley.
Bradley became the Premier League's first American-born manager when he succeeded Francesco Guidolin during the international break and took charge of his first match on Saturday in the 3-2 loss to Arsenal.
Despite the defeat, there were certainly positives to be drawn from the performance and Sigurdsson, who marked his 100th appearance for the club at the Emirates on Saturday with a beautifully curled effort to make it 2-1, said the players are responding to Bradley.
"The boys really like the new manager," Sigurdsson told Swansea's official website. "Training has been good since he came in -- really hard and really sharp. I think we have improved since he arrived and I think if we keep performing like we did in the next few games, we are going to start picking up a few wins."
Bradley admitted that there is still plenty of work to be done but sounded upbeat after pushing Arsenal right upuntil the end at the Emirates.
"That was an exciting game, but obviously didn't finish the way we wanted," Bradley said. "There's not one of us that now walks out today feeling good. No chance.
"But I think we can still look at some of what happened on the field today and say all right, that's what we need to be about. That's the kind of football we can play, that's the kind of mentality we can build on.''
