Swansea boss Francesco Guidolin says he has one eye on the future after his side edged closer to Premier League survival.
The Swans were in real danger of relegation not that long ago, but a good run of results, including Saturday’s 1-0 win over Aston Villa, has moved them to within touching distance of safety.
Swansea are 11 points clear of the drop zone, and Guidolin feels comfortable enough to start planning for the future to make sure they do not get sucked in again.
Whether Guidolin remains in charge beyond the end of the season remains to be seen, but he insists the club has to learn from their mistakes.
Â“It is my first home win and maybe this is the most important victory of the season, so I am very happy,Â” said Guidolin, who was back in the Swansea dugout after missing three matches with a chest infection.
Â“I know the performance was not very good but this is the match I was waiting for. I know the situation and I saw my playersÂ’ nerves come across in their performance.
Â“We got the goal and that was the most important thing. But in the future for the club, the fans and everyone involved we need to make sure we are not in this situation again.
Â“It is nearly finished, but not quite.Â”
