Laudrup became famous in the Danish league, long after he shook hands on a three-year contract with at Liverpool when he was a teenager in 1983.

When Liverpool changed the proposed agreement to four years, Laudrup backed out and signed for Juventus.

"Liverpool were my team as a kid," Laudrup recalls.

"I watched them as a kid on television back home in Denmark.

"I loved the team, the atmosphere. But I never got the chance to play there, partly because Liverpool were banned from Europe for a long time after Heysel.

"They tried to sign me, but that was a long time ago now — back in the good old days.

"Now I'm looking forward to being involved there, even on the touchline.

"It's a fantastic ground with a great crowd always."

New Liverpool manager, Brendan Rodgers moved Swansea City up to the Premier League before being hired byLiverpool last summer.

Some fans feel Rodgers deserted Swansea - and tonight's clash will be his first reunion.

"I don't look at it like that because I want to win every game, not just the ones where we play against ex-managers," he says.

"We beat the team of an ex-manager (Roberto Martinez) last week, but for me it's nothing special.

"I want to win all the games and this case is no different."

Laudrup has stated that he will make some squad changes for tonights clash.

"The team I pick will always be competitive, that's all I can confirm," Laudrup said. "Yes there will be changes. a couple of them will be forced — but I don't know how many yet.

"I have said a lot of times that I always like the cup competitions.

"I know there is something special when you play former players or former managers, but for me this is Swansea against Liverpool, not Swansea against Brendan Rodgers or Joe Allen.

"It's a big game against Liverpool at Anfield. We know that if we win, we can write something new in the story books of Swansea City."

The suspended Angel Rangel must be replaced at right-back, and there are options available to Laudrup in the shape of Dwight Tiendalli, Alan Tate and Jazz Richards.

"I have confidence in Gerhard and in David," Laudrup adds.

"There's no problem with Gerhard, and I've seen David in training and he has potential as well."

Swansea travel to Merseyside prepared to fight after their fine effort in defeat at Manchester City last weekend.

"We felt we deserved something at City — we created chances and stopped them from having big chances," Laudrup stated.

"If we play like we did against the other big sides, we will get something.

"This game is different because it is a cup tie — we know there has to be a winner tomorrow night.

"Hopefully it will be us, because it would be fantastic to reach the quarter-final."
