The Swans have produced some top-talent over recent years with the likes of Jazz Richards, Joe Allen and Ben Davies all having appeared for the senior side.

More recently Mo Barrow and Stephen Kingsley have been given opportunities having come through the academy in South Wales.

Guidolin has a good track record of working with young talent and carved out a reputation for doing so previously with Udinese.

“I’m used to working with young players because that was my attitude at Udinese,” he said.

“We were the youngest team in Serie A regularly. We played in the Europa league with young players because that was the philosophy of the club.”

However, the Italian conceded it will have to be different in the Premier League and he will look to blend in some youth with experience.

He added: “This is important for me, I like it. I want to have players with experience alongside many young players.

“The Premier League is the most important league in the world but the most difficult league.

“It is important to have a strong teams physically because the games are very quick.”
