Laudrup was slightly hard-done by at Swansea. The squad simply didn’t have the depth to cope with the rigours of both the Europa League and Premier League and as a result the club have moved backwards in the last few months. I don’t think this takes too much away from Laudrup who had excelled in South Wales and looks to be one of the most exciting young managers in our game. Whilst his managerial record is short, Laudrup is backed by an outstanding playing career that spans the continent. English speaking and more importantly cheap, this could very much be an option should the primary targets not materialise.
