Michael Laudrup: Still Swansea manager, but doubts surround his future

Michael Laudrup: Still Swansea manager, but doubts surround his future

Laudrup, who won the League Cup in his first season with Swansea, has steered the club into the FA Cup fifth round, but they are struggling in the Premier League and lie just two points above the relegation zone.

The defeat at Upton Park was their 12th of the season, with the Swans having won just six of their opening 24 games.

Laudrup's troops are 12th in the Premier League table but they are among four teams locked on 24 points and face a fight for top-flight survival.

The Dane has a strained relationship with chairman Huw Jenkins, but remains in the manager's hot-seat with some massive games on the horizon.

However, Sky Sports understands the board are split over his future at the Liberty Stadium.

Swansea face arch rivals Cardiff in their next game, and tackle Everton in the FA Cup and Napoli in the Europa League later this month.

Can we swap him for Moyes please?

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
