Michael Laudrup: Contracted to Swansea until the end of next season

The 48-year-old Dane, who took charge of the club in the summer following the departure of Brendan Rodgers to Liverpool, is enjoying a superb first season in charge.

The Swans are currently eighth in the Premier League table and will play in their first major cup final when they face Bradford in the Capital One Cup later this month.

Laudrup has been linked with jobs at Real Madrid and Chelsea but he does not feel the need to discuss any alterations to his current deal at the Liberty Stadium, which expires at the end of next season.

"I think for me the present is more important than the future, we have so many things coming up now and I already have a contract for next season so it is not urgent for me," said Laudrup.

"We have some very important things to deal with right now. I am talking to the chairman a lot of times every week and we talk about a lot of things."

Goalkeeper Gerhard Tremmel became the latest Swansea player to commit his future to the club, following on from midfielder Leon Britton, defender Garry Monk and top-scorer Michu earlier in the season.

"It's good to get the players signed up, they are important to us," added Laudrup. "We need to do it quick sometimes because it is difficult to compare and compete with the salaries of other clubs.

"You never know their other possibilities, you have to ask them, but we have to be realistic and know how it is here and the structure is working well. We know other clubs pay more money but players sign because they want to stay here which is good for us."

All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
