Swansea Ponder Sacking Michael Laudrup

Posted by

Dane is under pressure with the Swans struggling badly for form of late. 

Sections of the Swansea City board are understood to want head coach Michael Laudrup relieved of his managerial duties at the Liberty stadium before the current season draws to a close, according to exclusive reports in the Daily Mail.

The Swans may currently be in a mid-table position of 12th, however, after Saturday’s disappointing 2-0 loss against fellow strugglers West Ham United at Upton Park, the South Wales outfit are now just two points above the Hammers in the drop zone.

And there are now apparently factions in the club’s board who want the Dane sacked with Swansea seemingly heading for a relegation battle.

However, others also remember that is is just 12 months on from Laudrup guiding the club to their first-ever piece of silverware when they beat Bradford City at Wembley stadium to win the Capital One Cup.

And even so far in this campaign the former Real Madrid and Barcelona midfielder has still led Swansea to eye-catching victories away at both Manchester United in the FA Cup and La Liga outfit Valencia in the Uefa Europa League.

But if Premier League results continue to be as underwhelming as they have been of late, then Swans chairman Huw Jenkins may have little option but to sack his popular manager.
