League Cup winners to compete in Europe's secondary club competition

Sky Bet have made Swansea City 50/1 outsiders to win next season's Europa League on the back of their League Cup success.

The Swans brought a cruel end to League Two side Bradford's cup run, lifting the trophy courtesy of a 5-0 win at Wembley on Sunday.

It's the club's only major cup triumph in their 100-year existence and means they'll compete in Europe for the first time since their last appearance in the Cup Winners' Cup in 1992.

Manager Michael Laudrup has earned rave reviews in his debut campaign in English football and can now look forward to testing his managerial ability against some of Europe's biggest clubs.

Sky Bet Football Trader Chris Spicer said: "They're one of the first teams to secure their place in the Europa League next season, but it's a tall order for the Swans to go all the way.

"Laudrup is a real classy character and has turned a few heads this season. We have him in the running for some of the biggest jobs in the country, but Swansea will be desperate to keep him in charge."

The Dane is 5/1 to be the next manager of Chelsea after Rafa Benitez, while he is priced at 8/1 to be the next boss of Arsenal. He's also available to back to be the next manager of Real Madrid (8/1) and Man City (16/1).

t's just a ride. Bill Hicks is sorely missed, what a prophet and still relevant twenty years after his death. I'm glad though he didn't get to see George Bush Jnr as President.
