Swansea City appoint Michael Laudrup as new manager
Denmark legend Michael Laudrup has been confirmed as the new manager of Swansea City.
Sadly, Laudrup never made it to English football as a player – check out the video above for a few reasons why any club in the land would’ve gladly had him – but he’s coming now, albeit at a Welsh team.
The 48-year-old has signed a two-year deal at the Liberty Stadium. He has been out of work since quitting as Real Mallorca boss last year.
His previous managerial experience includes a successful season in charge of Getafe, a less successful stint at Spartak Moscow and an impressive four-year spell at Brondby.
Laudrup replaces Brendan Rodgers, who has taken over at Liverpool.
