Swansea City Manager Eyes Cup Success

Swansea City Manager Eyes Cup Success

Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup says a cup success for the club would be a 'special feeling' as the Swans look to beat Middlesbrough at home on Wednesday night to progress through to the semi-final of the League Cup.

Laudrup almost experienced the thrill of winning a cup competition with Getafe four years ago, but they lost in the final of the Copa del Rey.

The Swans face a tough game against Championship Middlesbrough, as Tony Mowbray's side target promotion to join the Swans in the Premier League next season.

Laudrup said:

'The downside with Getafe was we lost the final, but I still remember when we started in the first round all the way through to the final.

'It was very special and we also got to the Europa League quarter-finals.

'It was a fantastic year, though obviously we had to keep our eyes on the league and you have to manage that, that's the difficult part.

'That's something we could have to manage in January, but there is the possibility to maybe go and play in a final and win a trophy.

'When you are a smaller club when do you ever get the chance to play for a trophy?

'Being in mid-table or avoiding relegation is great, but it is a special feeling to win a trophy and we can do it with a cup.

'I have been to Wembley as a player, and been to finals as a manager and it's special.

'Cups are so special, you can can win, lose or draw in the league, but in the cup it is one or the other - you go on or you're out.'
