Laudrup: Swansea can be proud

Michael Laudrup thinks Swansea City can be proud after fighting back to draw with Chelsea at the end of a difficult week.

Last Updated: 04/11/12 at 08:44 Post Comment

The Welsh club lost narrowly at defending Premier League champions Manchester City last weekend before defeating Liverpool at Anfield on Wednesday in the Capital One Cup.

Swansea then came from a goal down to draw with kings of Europe Chelsea on Saturday as Pablo Hernandez's late equaliser cancelled out Victor Moses' header.

And boss Laudrup told Sky Sports when asked about the past week: "Very good, very important.

"The champions last Saturday, Liverpool at Anfield and then the European champions today. I think it was three really good performances."

Summer signing Hernandez was joined by the likes of fellow new arrival Ki Sung-Yueng in delivering an excellent performance against Chelsea.

And Laudrup, who succeeded Brendan Rodgers in the close-season, is pleased his new boys are beginning to make an impact.

"It is great," he said "You know when people, especially foreigners, come in, they need some time to adapt, because it is another way of football and another culture.

"I am very pleased for the new players and even more pleased for the team and the club, because it has been an important week.

"There is a lot to be proud of if you are a fan of us."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). 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.
