Guidolin: Survival is main priority

Will discuss future once club is safe

Swansea head coach Francesco Guidolin says he will discuss his future with the club once they are safe from relegation.

The Italian has helped to steer the Swans clear of the bottom three since replacing Garry Monk in the Liberty Stadium hotseat in December, but insists that there is still work to be done to secure their Premier League survival for another season and he won't be discussing his future until that has been achieved.

"I will speak in the next few weeks with my chairman [Huw Jenkins] about my future," Guidolin said.

"This is my agreement. First we must get maybe one, maybe three, maybe four points because 37 points is not enough.

"I'm only thinking match by match and to get many points to finish the season well. This is my dream.

"I hope to show my qualities as a manager, but I have said that my future is the present now and I don't know if I'm still here next year.

"I would like to show all my qualities, but I don't know [if that will happen]."

Guidolin, who has also managed Parma and Udinese, has been linked with the Italy job following the announcement that current national boss Antonio Conte would be leaving after the Euro 2016 finals to take the reins at Chelsea.

However, although he insists that he is flattered to be linked with the job, he insists that he is completely focused on Swansea.

"I don't know if my name is on the list for the Italian job," he added.

"If so, it is an honour for me because I'm Italian, but it is only rumours and I have not spoken to the Italian FA."
