Michael Laudrup Sacked By Swansea After Taking Two-Day Holiday To Paris Following West Ham Loss

Swans captain Garry Monk and coach Alan Curtis take temporary charge at the Liberty.

Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins decided to sack head coach Michael Laudrup after learning that the Dane had decided to go on holiday to Paris in the immediate aftermath of the key weekend loss to West Ham United, according to reports in the Daily Telegraph.

The struggling Swans went down 2-0 to the east London outfit in the Premier League at Upton Park on Saturday afternoon, the South Wales club’s sixth loss in their past eight top-flight contests and a reverse that left Laudrup’s team just two points above the drop zone.

However, it is understood that the final straw for Jenkins came when he learned that Laudrup’s reaction to the defeat in the capital was to jet off to the French capital with his wife for a two-day Spring break, while the Swansea players were also given two days off as well.

And as a result, when the 49-year-old returned from France to the Principality on Tuesday, he was immediately called into a meeting with the Swansea supremo where he was told of his fate.
