This comes just a day after initial reports of instability surrounding his position surfaced. However, on Tuesday afternoon chairman Huw Jenkins waved away the rumours and claimed to be 100% behind the former Getafe boss.
“I haven’t heard anything in reference to Michael and neither have we met, or discussed, or done anything about Michael,” Jenkins told BBC Sport Wales.
“A couple of us did actually meet up on Sunday morning to have a cup of coffee like we normally do. That’s as simple as it was. That’s where the first rumour came from.”
Laudrup enjoyed monumental success last term, leading the club to a top half finish in the Premier League as well as helping them to their first League Cup title.
However, they had found it a little harder this time around as they struggled with injuries and a congested schedule made worse by their debut season in the Europa League.
