Capital One Cup News: Michael Laudrup, Manager Swansea City

Swansea City celebrated their 100th year by winning their first major trophy and earning a place in Europe with new manager Michael Laudrup at the helm. The popular Wales club defeated Bradford 5-0 at Wembley Stadium on Sunday.

Laudrup is a retired superstar Danish footballer who played for Spanish club Barcelona, with whom he won four straight La Liga championships.

Laudrup has one more year left in his contract with The Swans.

Michael Ludrup's stunning success has attracted the interest of two of his former La Liga clubs, Real Madrid and FC Barcelona according to former Blaugrana defender Albert Ferrer, and he could end up with either of those prestigious clubs in future. Reportedly, Laudrup wants to stay at Swansea.

“He could go to Real Madrid or Barcelona. He has been a player of both teams. Barcelona supporters and Real Madrid supporters all love Michael Laudrup because of the way he is,” Ferrer was quoted in the BBC.
