Swansea City head coach Francesco Guidolin on losing key players Ashley Williams and Andre Ayew: “I was used to this at [previous club] Udinese. Every year we changed a lot of players, the best go, the young players arrive.
“I am used to working in this way. I was happy last season, at the moment it is the same with this group.
“It is different, but I am happy. There is a good feeling between me and my players.”
Hull City caretaker manager Mike Phelan on their lack of signings: “We face another game with the same group of players.
“I mentioned last week that it could have been a big week this week but not a lot has happened.
“Everything gets tighter and tighter and the days are ticking away.”
Hull’s win over Leicester was probably the performance of the weekend – it was just fantastic, but I think it might have been a one-off.
Swansea were also winners but I am still waiting to see what their regular team is going to be.
I don’t have that problem with the Tigers, because they have so few fit senior players. Until the takeover of the club is completed, they are going to remain short there.
