Swansea City have appointed former Udinese manager Francesco Guidolin as their new head coach.
Swansea, who sacked Gary Monk last month, are 18th in the Premier League ahead of tonight’s game with Watford.
Guidolin will have the final say on selection while working alongside Alan Curtis until the end of the season.
The Italian will be at the Liberty Stadium for the match but will only have a “watching brief”, Swansea said in a statement.
The south Wales club placed Curtis in caretaker charge after Monk’s departure and then announced on 7 January that the 61-year-old would continue as interim manager until the end of the season.
But after Swansea’s 4-2 home loss to relegation rivals Sunderland, Curtis said he would be willing to step aside if the club found a new boss before the end of the campaign.
