​Swansea's Italian coach resorts to arm gestures

Swansea's new Italian coach Francesco Guidolin may not be able to speak English, but that's no problem to him getting his message across, says Swans skipper Ashley Williams.

"Francesco does not speak English so well but he is making the effort, which is nice to see," Williams told BBC Sport.

"But, most of the time, even when he speaks Italian you know what he is saying anyway - because of his arm gestures, you kind of grasp what he is trying to get across."
