Laudrup Will Stay At Swansea Promises Agent

Laudrup Will Stay At Swansea Promises Agent

Michael Laudrup's agent Bayram Tutumlu has insisted Swansea City fans don't need to worry about losing their manager this Summer.

After reports confirmed that David Moyes will take over Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United next season, Laudrup quickly became one of the favourites to replace the Scot at Goodison Park.

Chairman Huw Jenkins was quick to insist that Michael Laudrup would turn down the offer if it came his way, and now both Laudrup and his agent say that he's staying in South Wales.

Laudrup told BBC Sport:

'My intention is to be here [at Swansea].'

'I don't have dreams of going to other clubs, I live in the present.'

'I haven't spoken to anyone [at Everton], I don't have time I have so much work to do here,'


His agent, Bayram Tutumlu also added:

'He will not be changing clubs,'

'He likes Swansea and is very settled.

'People always talk about Michael becoming a coach of other clubs because he has done very well.

'But he is the manager of Swansea and that will not change. The Swansea fans do not need to worry. He will be there next season.'


Swansea City fans have come used to their manager being automatically linked with a manager's job elsewhere, but that goes to prove how successful they've been in recent years.

They lost their last two managers as Roberto Martinez and Brendan Rodgers were both tempted by moves elsewhere.

Swansea fans still get nervous when a manager leaves or announces his departure from a club as Laudrup will obviously be heavily linked with jobs having also experienced success like his predecessors.

So far, Laudrup seems to be true to his word that he will stay on for at least another season to enjoy a Europa League campaign at the Liberty Stadium. But what happens beyond that is anyone's guess. He is contracted for another two years but you get the feeling that he may move in 2014. Hopefully not but for now it appears that Huw Jenkins won't have to search for a new manager just yet.
