No Taylor problem - Guidolin

No Taylor problem - Guidolin

Swansea boss Francesco Guidolin insists there is currently no problem with Neil Taylor after he was hauled off on Sunday.

The Wales international was the victim of a tactical decision in the clash with Chelsea as he was taken off with 42 minutes on the clock.

Guidolin was experimenting with three centre-backs but reverted to a back-four as Chelsea led 1-0 and looked likely to further enhance their tally.

Taylor was left visibly frustrated at the substitution but the Italian was vindicated as the Swans fought back and claimed a share of the points in a 2-2 draw.

The Swans boss insists that there is no ongoing rift between himself and the defender after he explained his through process and the reasoning behind it.

Guidolin said: "I spoke with him (Taylor) on the bench after the substitution and in the dressing room in front of all the players.

"What I had to say, I have said face to face. I spoke about it in front of the world in the press conference and for me there is no more problem. It's enough.

"Yes, I don't like this situation, but it's a possibility for a manager. I saw many other managers change before half-time and I think it's not a problem. But it's not a good moment and I wanted to say to Neil it wasn't an easy decision for me."
