SWANSEA, Wales — Swansea coach Francesco Guidolin has been released from the hospital after missing the team’s last two games because of a chest infection.

Swansea says on its official Twitter account that Guidolin "will resume duties this week."

The 60-year-old Italian was referred to a respiratory specialist in London on Wednesday. He missed Swansea’s 2-1 win at Arsenal that night and also the 1-0 victory over Norwich on Saturday that further eased Swansea’s relegation fears.

First-team coach Alan Curtis has been in charge of the team in Guidolin’s absence.
