Francesco Guidolin has virtually confirmed he’ll leave Swansea, saying “his job will be done” when their top-flight future is assured.
The veteran Italian manager was appointed at the Liberty Stadium midway through the campaign following Garry Monk’s sacking, charged with the task of keeping them in the Premier League.
Ahead of Sunday’s home clash with Liverpool, the Swans know just one more win will seal their place in the top flight and Guidolin is realistic about his future at the club beyond that, with former manager Brendan Rodgers heavily linked with a return to South Wales in the summer.
“My job will be done when we are mathematically safe. We are not there yet,” he said. “I’m relaxed about my job and I’m happy if people are talking about other managers. It means we are no longer talking about relegation.
“That was all I heard when I arrived three months ago.
He added: “I keep reminding my players every week that is all the matters right now. They are ready to approach these last games like three cup finals.”
