BREAKING: Swansea City fire Michael Laudrup
- Updated: February 4, 2014
Swansea City have released a statement Tuesday saying that the club has decided to part ways with former-manager Michael Laudrup.
In his first year at Liberty Stadium in 2012-13, Swansea finished ninth in the Premier League. Many thought that Swansea were going to come back stronger than the year before with the addition of Ivory Coast international striker Wilfried Bony and midfielder Jonjo Shelvey from Liverpool.
After a disappointing first two-thirds of their Premier League season, Swansea have fallen to twelfth in the table with just 24 points, and fans and analysts have placed much of this blame on the departed Danish gaffer.
Garry Monk is set to take over as manager of the club until more permanent measures can be sorted out.
Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins confirmed Laudrup’s exit on the club’s website, saying, “It is a decision we have taken reluctantly, but it’s a decision made in the best interests of Swansea City Football Club and our supporters.”
Swansea’s next match is against Cardiff at home on February 8th.
