Laudrup pens new Swansea deal
Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup has signed a new contract with the South Wales club that will keep him at the Liberty Stadium until 2015.
The Swans have been impressive under Laudrup this season who has continued the work of Brendan Rodgers with City playing attractive football and being successful at the same time.
Swansea won their first major trophy in their centenary season last month as they beat Bradford City in the Capital One Cup final at Wembley and they will now play in the Europa League next season as a consequence.
Laudrup had been linked with a move away from the Liberty Stadium in the summer with Chelsea and Real Madrid both reportedly lining up talks with the Danish boss.
Swansea fans will be delighted to hear that Laudrup will be staying at the club after a successful season and the 48-year-old has expressed his joy at remaining in South Wales for the foreseeable future.
“We’ve started something this season that I want to continue,” Laudrup told the clubs official site.
“I know there has been a lot of speculation (about my future), but I’ve always said that I am happy here and I never had any doubts I would stay.
“I am delighted to sign the new deal and I’m already really looking forward to next season. I hope there will be some very exciting things happening with the team and with the club in Europe.’’
