Former Swansea manager Jan Molby believes his old club and compatriot Michael Laudrup are a "match made in heaven".

The Dane is favourite to become Brendan Rodgers' replacement at the Liberty Stadium and an announcement could be made later on Friday.

"He was strongly influenced by Johan Cruyff when he was at Barcelona in the late 1980s, early 90s," Molby told BBC Sport Wales. "That's how he wants to play his football, that's how Swansea played last year under Brendan Rodgers, so if it happens I think it's a marriage made in heaven."
