Former Swansea manager Michael Laudrup believes that his old side have enough quality to steer clear of relegation this term.
Last season’s Capital One Cup winners have emerged as shock candidates for the drop this term on the back of a disappointing campaign in which they have balanced European action with domestic duties.
The Swans struggled over the winter period and eventually sacked Laudrup in February on the back of some poor showings.
Since then former captain Garry Monk has been in charge, but results have not been any more positive, with their stand-in chief having only managed one win in six – a run that leaves them just four points above the dreaded trap door.
Laudrup says that he has not been giving his old club much attention since being relieved of his duties, but that he feels they have the quality to steer clear of dropping back into the Championship:
“I’m not there so often but I am still living in Swansea. I have just been doing family things, travelling around, seeing my kids.” He is quoted by the Daily Mail.
“I have seen a couple of games, but not so much. I think they will be safe.
“The results you cannot change, but I am sure they will stay up. Saturday is a very big game for them.”
Swansea take on Norwich this weekend.
