Barcelona and Real Madrid legend Michael Laudrup becomes the Swans newest coach. Laudrup’s appointment should continue the attacking style favoured by Brendan Rodgers with the Danish attacking midfielder steeped in Johan Cruyff’s philosophy while at Barcelona. As a player he was renowned for his precision passing and sporting conduct on the pitch never receiving a red card.
Johan Cruyff: “When Michael plays like a dream, a magic illusion, determined to show his new team his extreme abilities, no one in the world comes anywhere near his level.”
Here is current legend Andres Iniesta on Laudrup: “Who is the best player in history? Laudrup.”
Laudrup had considerable success coaching Danish club Brondby and thereafter the Liga’s Getafe. He will be seeking to reverse some of the tarnish that came off in his tenure with Spartak Moscow.
Great choice. If one were new to the Premiership and looking for a team to follow or support, the Swans should be on that list.
