Laudrup: My Intention Is To Stay At Swansea City

Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup insists his intention is to stay at the Liberty Stadium, as questions get asked about a new contract.

Huw Jenkins is quite confident that Laudrup will sign a new 12-month extension, and the manager's agent is set to hold talks with the Swansea chairman about extending his stay in South Wales beyond 2014 - when his current deal expires.

While he has expressed his desire to stay, Laudrup still prefers to concentrate on the present, rather than the future, saying that looking ahead to the Liverpool game and the League Cup Final is more important at this stage.

He told Sport 360:

"I have said more than once that my intention is to stay. I have a contract and it`s a very interesting team we are building and again we will try to build on in the summer.

"Now we have to stay in the present and the present is the league and to win the cup final. Then we can look at next season and see with new players coming in, the possibility of playing in Europe, it will be a very exciting season but first we have to finish this one."


Laudrup also confirmed that he hasn't held talks with the club about a new contract:

"No. We have a lot of games coming up and I don`t have time for anything else, if there are talks then I have a person in charge of that.'

'We`re way ahead of what I could have imagined, being in the cup final it`s a huge success for everybody in the city, the club, the players and the staff.

'But the daily bread is the league and we have 37 points at this stage with just 12 games to go, we talk about the magic 40 points that should mean we stay up so we are very close to our first target.

'Then I always say once we`ve reached the 40 points we can look and see what the new challenge is.'
