Saying “There’s lots to talk through”, Huw Jenkins seems to admit Francesco Guidolin may’ve just played himself into a job.

Named the manager of Swansea with the club in a relegation battle, Guidolin has led the club to six wins from 10 matches and a comfortable finish.

The 60-year-old former boss of Empoli and Bologna amongst many stops wants to stay at Swansea into next season, something that was not in the plans for Swansea when he was appointed to save the club’s Premier League status.

But now?

From the South Wales Evening Post:

“He has brought in a bit of common sense and a bit of simplicity, as well as experience.

“I don’t think those simple things are highlighted enough in the modern world of football.”

Jenkins says the Swansea board will meet Wednesday to discuss the managerial position, as well as the failures and successes of this season. It’s clear they could do much worse than letting Guidolin have a shot at a season of his own.
