Swansea City news: Manager Francesco Guidolin will be given time to turn around winless run

The Swansea City hierarchy will give under-pressure manager Francesco Guidolin time to bounce back from the Jacks’ five-match winless run, it is claimed.

The Welsh club haven’t won a Premier League game since the opening day of the season, and both Ryan Giggs and Gianfranco Zola have subsequently been linked with replacing Guidolin in the hotseat.

An American consortium led by Stephen Kaplan and Jason Levien took over at the Liberty Stadium in July, inheriting the 60-year-old Italian as manager.

Guidolin was appointed in January and was handed a new two-year contract by the club after impressing in his first five months in charge.

But rumours claimed he could be replaced just a few weeks into the new campaign after the team’s poor run of results.

However, it is understood Swansea’s owners are NOT pushing the panic button just yet, and will give Guidolin time to turn things around.

Man United legend Giggs and former West Ham and Watford boss Zola are among those to have been linked with the job, but speculation cooled after the Jacks’ admirable display against Manchester City on Saturday.

Positive signs were evident in the 3-1 defeat to the Premier League leaders City, and Guidolin said after the loss that he had not met with club chairman Huw Jenkins to discuss his future.

Swansea’s only wins this season were at Burnley and against Peterborough in the EFL Cup.

And, with upcoming clashes against Liverpool and Arsenal either side of the October international break, the situation could deteriorate before it improves for Guidolin.
