Michael Laudrup plays down Barcelona speculation

Published Add your comment

After Tito Vilanova's resignation from Barcelona on Friday, Michael Laudrup has become one of the early frontrunners to take his place. 

However the successful Swansea manager has refused to comment on the possibility of moving to the Spanish giants.

Vilanova retired on Friday evening due to serious illness - which has led to the Spanish champions beginning their search for a new manager and the club have said they hope to have a replacement by the start of next week.

The ex-Barcelona player however, has claimed to know not much about the situation and has refused to comment on any possibilities of him leaving his current side - who have enjoyed much success under the Dane's management over the last year. 

"I can't comment on the speculation, it's all just happened today and even for those in the club who maybe knew about the situation,” explained Laudrup.

“I still think the announcement will have come as a shock.”

Laudrup has spent most of the summer explaining that he has no plans to leave Swansea, and has even admitted to declining a couple of lucrative deals from top European teams. 

However, after having such a successful campaign last year and overseeing a very promising pre-season - along with making several new signings - it's hard to see why he would want to leave a team that head into their first Europa League campaign.
