Swansea City has announced Francesco Guidolin will join the club as head coach and work with interim manager Alan Curtis until the end of the season.
The Welsh club sacked Gary Monk in December after a poor run of results and appointed Alan Curtis as his replacement albeit in an interim basis, and now the club has announced the veteran Italian would be joining the club until the end of the season.
The 60-year old Guidolin is highly experience having coached several teams since his coaching career took off in 1986. He was last with Udinese, having managed them from 1998 – 1999, and then 2010 – 2014.
Swansea City are currently in a precarious position, as they are in the bottom three – precisely the 18th position on the table, and Curtis has found it hard to pull them up as he has only won one of his six Premier League games – a Boxing Day win over West Brom.
