Laudrup relishing Premier League chance

Published Add your comment

New Swansea boss Michael Laudrup has admitted he did not want to regret "in 15 years' time" never having been a Premier League manager.

The Dane succeeds Brendan Rodgers charged with maintaining and improving the club's top-flight fortunes following a sparkling debut season last term. Rodgers, now in charge at Liverpool, inspired the Swans to an 11th-placed finish and won rave reviews for a stylish, creative approach that his players readily absorbed.

"As a youngster when I was living in Denmark we used to watch English football on television," Laudrup said. "I always thought there was something special about the atmosphere... This is a great opportunity for me. It's a big challenge, but I did not want to be sitting on the couch at home in 15 years' time saying to myself 'why didn't I do it?'"
