Guidolin expects long-term Udinese stay

Francesco Guidolin expects to remain with Udinese.

The coach says he's willing to be kicked upstairs if need be.

"I have always been very clear on this issue," assured Guidolin.

"I said there is a good, honest and fair rapport between me and the club. I discuss future projects with the President on a daily basis and, at the end of the season, we'll decide which road to go down. We are evaluating different possibilities with the right calm.

"Nothing has changed with the Pozzo family. In fact, it's as if we notched up 70 points this season. Will I remain on the Udinese bench? It's a hypothesis we won't rule out.

"Will the staff remain the same? This will also be evaluated in case we change Coach. I have always said that I turned down other proposals.

"I could've challenged for far more prestigious targets and earned a lot more money, but I made choices that perhaps nobody else would've done because I am happy here and wanted the story to continue.

"I know that I am appreciated here, that the majority of the fans respect me and I can give more to the cause. There's no lack of work to be done here.
