First team staff
Head Coach - Francesco Guidolin
Francesco Guidolin joined the Swans as Head Coach in January, 2016.
Guidolin has a wealth of experience and success having led Udinese to third place in Serie A – recording their highest top-flight finish and points tally – and sealing their first Champions League campaign.
He also has three promotions on his CV with Parma, Palermo and Vicenza where he made his name after lifting the Italian Cup and leading them to the Cup Winners’ Cup semi-final, where they lost to Chelsea.
At the Liberty he is working alongside interim manager Alan Curtis until the end of the season as the Swans look to climb the Barclays Premier League table.
Interim manager/First Team Coach - Alan Curtis
Alan Curtis is synonymous with Swansea City. In fact, he's simply known around the club as 'The Legend'.
The Welsh international not only played for the club over three different spells, but he has also held virtually every footballing position possible off the field from Football in the Community officer to youth team coach, first team caretaker manager and current coach.
He won 35 caps for his country and also had spells at Leeds United, Southampton and Cardiff City in a career that spanned two decades.
Curt experienced the highs of the game at the top level with the Swans during their meteoric rise through all four divisions to the top of the First, but only after he had experienced the lows as the Swans were forced to apply for re-election to the Football League in 1975.
During the 1977-78 promotion winning season he scored 32 league goals, just three short of the record set by Cyril Pearce during the 1931-32 season, and 12 months later joined Leeds United for a club record £400,000.
Noted for his body swerve, he had three spells with the Swans, but his individual goal in the Swans debut match in the old First Division against his former club Leeds will be remembered for a long time.
The Rhondda-born legend, nephew of Roy Paul, scored 95 goals from 359 league appearances for the Swans.
Since his playing career wound down in 1990, Curt has remained in the game as a coach with both the Swans and Wales, giving back to the game his wisdom and experience gained during his years as a player.
He has also occupied the assistant manager, youth team manager, and Football in the Community officer roles at the Swans along with a stint as matchday host.
Now First Team Coach, Curt stepped up his role with the arrival of new manager Michael Laudrup to work alongside the Great Dane and assistant manager Erik Larsen, before maintaining same role following Garry Monk's appointment.
Coach - Diego Bortoluzzi
Diego Bortoluzzi has reunited with head coach Francesco Guidolin today after joining Swansea City’s coaching team.
Bortoluzzi worked under Guidolin at Palermo, Parma and Udinese and played a key role in their success.
The 49-year-old, who was most recently at Verona, becomes the third Italian among the Swans’ coaching staff, which also includes Gabriele Ambrosetti.
Bortoluzzi, who featured for Atalanta, Brescia and Venezia during his playing career, will work under Guidolin and alongside Alan Curtis, Ambrosetti, David Adams and keeper coach Tony Roberts.
He was involved in training today (Thursday) as the Swans prepare for Tuesday night’s Barclays Premier League fixture at West Brom.
Goalkeeping Coach - Tony Roberts
Former Wales international Tony Roberts was appointed the club’s new first-team goalkeeping coach in June, 2015.
Roberts, who joined from Arsenal, replaced Javier Garcia who returned to his home in Spain for personal reasons after 12 months at the club.
Roberts enjoyed a distinguished goalkeeping career that spanned over two decades. Having come through the youth ranks at QPR, he made nearly 150 appearances for the West London club before spending a season with Millwall in 1998.
However, after a brief coaching stint in America, Roberts returned to English football with non-league Dagenham & Redbridge in 2000 to become a firm fans' favourite.
He played over 450 games for the Daggers - helping them win promotion to the Football League for the first time in 2007 - and remains the club's all-time record appearance maker.
It was during his time at the Daggers that Roberts began coaching with Arsenal's Academy before stepping up to work with the first team in 2010-11. He returned to the Academy set up last season.
He fitted his Arsenal role around his playing commitments with Dagenham & Redbridge until he brought a glittering playing career to an end in the summer of 2013.
Roberts also won two caps for Wales and is the only goalkeeper to have scored in an FA Cup tie when he netted for Dagenham & Redbridge against Basingstoke Town in October 2001.
Coach - Gabriele Ambrosetti
Gabriele Ambrosetti was named coach at the Swans just days following Francesco Guidolin's arrival in January, 2016.
The 42-year-old reunited with Guidolin, who he helped win the Italian Cup with Vicenza in 1997.
Ambrosetti began his career with hometown club Varese before an impressive stint with Brescia.
Season-long loan spells with Venezia and Vicenza followed, before he moved to the latter on a permanent basis.
His time at Vicenza was a big success, and his performances were key to the club's Italian Cup successwhile his performances against Chelsea in the Cup Winners Cup semi-final the following season led to his move to Stamford Bridge.
Ambrosetti would go on to play for Piacenza and former club Vicenza before announcing his retirement while at lower league side Pro Patria.
He then spent time travelling around the world watching games in numerous countries as he studied various players and teams.
Performance psychologist – Ian Mitchell
Ian teamed up with the Swans on their pre-season training camp in America in July 2014 as the club’s first full-time ‘performance psychologist’.
The former professional footballer quit his role as a principle lecturer and director in sports science and psychology at Cardiff Metropolitan University to take up the unique post.
Mitchell has plenty of first-hand experience to help him achieve success in his new role.
Having started his career as a schoolboy at Chelsea, the Ebbw Vale-product also captained Wales up to Under-18 level before signing professional forms with Hereford in the old Division Three.
But after two years with The Bulls, he was forced to leave the pro game behind after a broken leg and serious cruciate ligament damage.
He made the move closer to home and enjoyed 10 years as a prolific striker with Merthyr Tydfil where his part-time career spanned nearly 300 games.
Off the field he put a Master’s Degree and PhD to good use to become a principal lecturer in sports psychology and director of sports science at Cardiff Metropolitan University – a position he recently relinquished after 18-years’ service.
Having completed his UEFA A licence, he coached the Wales Victory Shield team for the last two seasons; managed the GB and Wales University Student squad, while also working with the Under-21s and U18s in the Swans Academy for the previous two years.
He has also delivered and assessed on the UEFA Professional and Advanced licences in the areas of coaching effectiveness, leadership and psychology over the last 12 years.
Ian has also been appointed by Chris Coleman as Wales’ performance psychologist for their European Championship qualifiers.
Head of Sports Science – Jonny Northeast
Jonny began working for the Swans during the campaign in which the club won promotion from the Championship.
A graduate from Cardiff Metropolitan University in Conditioning, Rehabilitation and Massage, he started his career as an intern assisting in the monitoring of training sessions with the use of polar team 2 heart rates and Statsport GPS system.
After becoming lead sports scientist with the club's Under-21s with the objective to enhance individual and team physical performance, Jonny then stepped up to the first team upon Garry Monk's appointment as interim head coach in February 2014. In his role he headed up the department, with his main objectives including reducing injury occurrence while improving physical preparation, development and performance, on top of offering support to coaching staff.
While fulfilling his current role, Jonny is continuing his research at Swansea University completing his MSc part-time.
Head of recruitment – David Leadbeater
Headed to the Liberty in the summer of 2010 after 16 years at Middlesbrough.
Was appointed by the Swans to help the club refocus, reform and restructure its recruitment policy.
Born in Barnsley, Leadbeater played part-time for Bridlington Town before making the step up to Hull City as a 19-year-old and then Scunthorpe before returning to the non-league scene.
Was player-manager of Unibond side Ossett Town before coaching the under-19s at Halifax, while also starting to help out part-time with Middlesbrough.
He ended up scouting for players from Academy age up after being promoted quickly by former manager Steve McClaren; carrying out all the European assessments before another ex-boss Gareth Southgate promoted him again to head of all recruitment in 2007.
During his time at Ayrsome Park and then the Riverside, Leadbeater recruited the likes of Tuncay, Gary O’Neill and Luke Young.
Football Utilities Co-ordinator - Suzan Eames
Suzan took over as Football Utilities Co-ordinator at the club 11 years ago.
A huge Swans fan, she originally started work at the Harry Griffiths Bar at the Vetch Field during Jan Molby's reign before helping prepare the kit.
Born in Birmingham before moving to Swansea via Plymouth, Suzan has worked under nine managers during her time at the club.
Her duties include preparing staff kits, matchday kit, substitutes' playing kit, warm-up kit, bibs and ensuring footballs are pumped and pressurised to regulation for the first team and reserves.
