Laudrup plays down contract situation
Swansea manager Michael Laudrup says that there is no need to extend his contract with the club right away.
As well as league success, the South Wales-based outfit have reached the final of the Capital One Cup for the first time in their history.
These achievements have seen him linked with positions at Chelsea and Real Madrid, with both believed to be on the lookout for new managers.
Laudrup’s contract is set to expire at the end of next season, but he claims that there is no need to sort out his future now:
“I think for me the present is more important than the future, we have so many things coming up now and I already have a contract for next season so it is not urgent for me,” he is quoted by Sky Sports
“We have some very important things to deal with right now. I am talking to the chairman a lot of times every week and we talk about a lot of things.”
Meanwhile, Swansea have tied back-up goalkeeper Gerhard Tremmel down to a new contract.
His signature follows that of Leon Britton and Gary Monk, moves which have pleased Laudrup:
“It’s good to get the players signed up, they are important to us,
“We need to do it quick sometimes because it is difficult to compare and compete with the salaries of other clubs.”
