Guidolin has been brought in to work alongside interim manager Alan Curtis, with the club in the Barclays Premier League relegation zone ahead of Monday night's home game against Watford.

Swansea say Guidolin will have the final say on team selection and the 60-year-old Italian will have a watching brief for the Watford game before taking on a hands-on role for the first time at Everton on Sunday.

"We are very pleased with the appointment,'' Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins told the official club website. "His experience and knowledge will be a huge asset to the club."
