New Swans boss Laudrup admits Reds could pinch Sigurdsson

4y ago


Michael Laudrup says his outlook on football makes him a perfect fit to take Swansea City forward, after the Dane was unveiled as Premier League club's manager on Thursday. Under Brendan Rodgers, who left for Liverpool in May, the Welsh club became renowned for their slick, passing style. Laudrup admits he didn't know a lot about Swansea - who have spent just one season in England's top flight in the last 29 years - but the 48-year-old says he shares the club's ideology. He said: "It's the club - always the club - that points out the philosophy, and then you have to pick the manager. But the manager also goes along with the way that things are done." When Rodgers was still in charge at Swansea, a fee had been agreed with Hoffenheim to sign on-loan midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson. Now the Iceland international is being tipped to join his former manager at Anfield. And although Laudrup says he'd like to keep a player who scored seven times in 18 matches last term, he admits the lure of a Liverpool may prove too tempting for the 22-year-old to turn down: Bookmark: Subscribe to Goal - Twitter - Facebook Goal UK: Goal International:
