The Swans have struggled in the opening weeks of the Premier League season to pile the pressure on Guidolin, while a couple of high-profile bust ups with players have added to the rumours.

Guidolin has had public spats with both Neil Taylor and Ki Sung-yueng after substituting them during games, but Britton insists there are no issues behind the scenes.

“The manager has got the respect of all the players in the squad,” he said. “I’ve not seen anyone disrespect the manager in training or behind closed doors. He’s had a career where he has managed in Italy for so long in the top flight.

“He might not be the big world star name as such, but I think as players you have to respect your manager.

“The players speak in the changing room and on the training ground. On Sunday everyone was frustrated with the way we played, and I think Ki will be disappointed. We are professional, we have to respect the manager and respect the group of players we’ve got.

“If there is a problem, like always in football, you deal with it in the changing room.”
