Swansea City head coach Francesco Guidolin has been released from hospital after recovering from a chest infection and is set to return to work this week.

Guidolin, 60, was taken to hospital hours before Swansea's 2-1 win at Arsenal last Wednesday.

He saw a respiratory specialist after failing to fully respond to treatment.

The Italian also missed the 1-0 win over Norwich, with Alan Curtis in charge for the second successive game.

"Francesco Guidolin has been released from hospital after making a good recovery and will resume duties this week," Swansea City tweeted.external-link
