Swansea chief rejects Laudrup talk

Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins has dismissed reports that the future of manager Michael Laudrup is under threat, as the club find themselves just two points clear of the Premier League relegation zone.

Michael Laudrup's Swansea have won one of their last nine Premier League matches.
Michael Laudrup has come under pressure in recent weeks.

Hicks: Brutally simplistic

Saturday’s 2-0 defeat at West Ham has added to the concerns over the Swans’ top-flight safety, with their next game crucial to their hopes of turning things around as they welcome neighbours Cardiff to the Liberty Stadium on Saturday.

There were reports that the Swansea hierarchy had met to discuss Laudrup’s future on Sunday, but Jenkins has moved to quash those suggestions.

“I haven’t heard anything in reference to Michael and neither have we met, or discussed, or done anything about Michael,” he told BBC Sport.

“A couple of us did actually meet up on Sunday morning to have a cup of coffee like we normally do. That’s as simple as it was. That’s where the first rumour came from. It’s difficult for me to say anything because there isn’t anything to discuss.”

There have been further reports claiming Jenkins and Laudrup disagreed over January transfer targets, but the Swansea chief seems keen to refocus attention on the battle to win points and avoid being sucked into the relegation zone.

“The bigger picture as always is winning a Premier League match and it so happens this week we are playing Cardiff,” he said. “Winning the match I can assure you is the most important thing for both teams.

“When you end up losing matches, when everything is so tight at the bottom of the Premier League, you get rumours and you get stories. We have had them for many weeks. If we win, everything is fine. If we lose, it’s not.”
