Michael Laudrup named new Swansea City manager

Michael Laudrup has been appointed the new Swansea City manager on a two-year contract.

The former Real Madrid, Barcelona and Denmark player takes over from new Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers.
Laudrup, who has previous managerial experience at Brondby, Getafe, Spartak Moscow and Real Mallorca, is Swansea’s third manager in the past four years.

The 48-year-old completed negotiations with the Premier League club on Friday and will arrive in Wales on Thursday.


So there you have it. After much speculation Swansea City welcome former playing legend Michael Laudrop to take over from Brendan Rodgers in charge of the Welsh side.

The 48 year old former Juventus, Barcelona and Real Madrid midfielder quit as Mallorca manager back in September last term and is seemingly ready to make a managerial return.

The former Danish international started his managerial career at Brondby before enjoying moderate success in Spain with Getafe before a disastrous spell in charge at Spartak Moscow before moving to Mallorca.
