​Swansea skipper Britton urges players to respect boss Guidolin

Swansea captain Leon Britton has called on the players to "respect" boss Francesco Guidolin, as pressure mounts on the 60-year-old Italian.

Swansea have not won a Premier League game since the opening day of 2016-17.

Guidolin has also seen Neil Taylor and Ki-Sung Yueng reacting angrily to being substituted in their last two games.

"I think Ki will be disappointed, we have to be professional and respect the manager and the group of players we've got," said Britton.

"If you have an issue with anything we deal with it in the changing room.

"As much as there's frustration and emotion running high - when you're not performing well we have to remember we are professionals and we have to respect everyone involved in the football club and I hope that's the last we see of that."
