Swansea boss Francesco Guidolin expects long FA Cup run

Swansea City boss Francesco Guidolin says he hopes for a long EFL Cup run.

Guidolin has his first taste of an English cup competition when Swansea head to Peterborough in the second round of the EFL Cup.

"We (Vicenza) won the Coppa Italia and for a little team this is fantastic," said Guidolin.

"It is not exactly the same as Leicester [winning the Premier League] but after us no little team has won the Coppa Italia. This was one of my best moments."

Swansea won the League Cup in 2013 and the Italian wants the club to have another run in the competition.

"The cups in the UK are important and I want to respect this attitude," said Guidolin.

"We will go to Peterborough with a good team, try to win and continue in the competition. We hope to go a long way and have a fantastic FA Cup, to try and stay in all competitions."
